Asparagus & Prosciutto Fritti

Written by Kevin Kapusi Starow

This combination of asparagus and cured pork is delicious, then add to that the bite of acid from fresh lemon, and you are elevated to another gastronomic level. Asparagus & Prosciutto Fritti can be a starter or just a snack with a crisp white wine on a balmy summer evening.

This recipe, for me, screams the Mediterranean, those lazy summer afternoons filled with friends, laughter and memorable food. That is simple to prepare and packs a flavour punch that helps to create lifelong memories.

Let’s Make a Difference

Every day we have the opportunity to make hundreds of choices. We are so fortunate to live in a time where information is so easily accessible and we have the opportunity and freedom to make choices that we feel are the best for us and our families.

I encourage you to continue educating yourself and others about the benefits of living a plant-based lifestyle. Cook a plant-based meal, opt-out of products like leather, watch a documentary with a family member or friend. It’s easy to feel like the choices we make are small, but when we make these choices together, we can make a big difference!
