Looking for a healthy party appetizer or a nice side dish at dinner? These baked asparagus wrapped in halal-certified Deli Halal Oven-Roasted Turkey Breast slices are so delicious and nutritious that you’ll serve them over and over again for gatherings, or even as a side dish to your dinner spreads.
If you’ve read this site before, you’ll know that I’ve been a fan of Deli Halal products since they first came out a few years ago. Now, they’ve re-launched and are available in stores across the United States. This is so super exciting because not only are they hand-processed, truly halal deli meats, but they don’t contain any of those nitrites or nitrates that you find in so many deli meats, halal or not.
Once cooked, the asparagus sprigs will soften quite a bit.
Oven-Roasted Turkey-Wrapped Asparagus Appetizers
25 stalks of thin asparagus
Freshly ground black pepper
1 package of Deli Halal Oven-Roasted Turkey Breast or any of the other Deli Halal meat products
To Make the Asparagus Wraps
Cut the white, tough ends off of each of the asparagus strips.
Blanch the asparagus in boiling water for about three minutes, then drain of all water.
Preheat the oven to 325 degrees Fahrenheit.
On a baking sheet, bundle the asparagus into bunches of five stalks each. Drizzle with olive oil, salt and pepper.
Next, wrap each of the bundles with two pieces of the Deli-Halal Oven-Roasted Turkey Breast. Secure with a toothpick.
Roast the bundles in the oven for 15 minutes. Let cool and serve on a platter with fresh herbs, slices of lemon, olives or any other similar types of toppings or condiments such as garlic-mayonnaise or spicy mustard (both recipes you can find in the My Halal Kitchen cookbook).
