  • Heat the broiler to high (with the rack 6 inches from the heating element) and grab the asparagus. Place the rubber bands back on the cleaned asparagus, line up the ends and cut off the tough ends (about 2 inches from the bottom).
  • Divide the asparagus evenly on two rimmed baking sheets, drizzle some avocado oil over the spears, and season conservatively with Magic Mushroom Powder (or salt) and pepper. Don’t go crazy with the Magic Mushroom powder because the prosciutto is plenty salty.
  • Cut each slice of prosciutto into 3 thin strips and wrap one strip around each asparagus spear.
  • Pop one tray under the broiler for ~5-8 minutes (tossing the spears at the halfway point) or until the prosciutto crisps up and the asparagus is tender. Repeat the process with the second tray.
  • Drizzle on some aged balsamic vinegar and dig in!
