If you’re looking for a way to put pizzazz in your vegetables, look no further. Spicy Nutmeg Butter gives a distinctive warm flavor to asparagus spears.

Ingredients Asparagus with Spicy Nutmeg

  • 1 1/2 lbs medium asparagus spears (about 30 spears)
  • 1 Tbs olive oil
  • 1/4 tsp McCormick® Gourmet Collection Garlic Salt
  • 1/4 tsp McCormick® Gourmet Collection Nutmeg, Ground
  • 1/8 tsp McCormick® Gourmet Collection Red Pepper, Ground Cayenne
  • 2 Tbs butter, melted
  • 1/4 cup pine nuts, toasted (optional)


Wash asparagus and break off stalks as far down as they snap easily, about 1 to 2 inches from ends. Arrange asparagus in single layer on large rimmed baking pan lined with foil. Drizzle asparagus with oil and roll to coat.
Broil asparagus 4 to 6 minutes or until tender-crisp, turning once. Place in a serving dish.
Stir garlic salt, nutmeg and red pepper into melted butter. Pour over asparagus. Garnish with pine nuts, if desired.
