Parmesan Garlic Popcorn
Homemade popcorn is actually a nutritious snack. I cook the popcorn kernels right on the stove in peanut or olive oil. Both oils are good fats and a source of energy and essential fatty acids. I used to shy away from good fats before I knew they were good fats. But now that I know better, I try to incorporate good fats everyday.
After it was cooked, I poured the popcorn into a bowl. Then I melted a couple tablespoons of I Can't Believe It's Not Butter buttery spread and tossed it in with the popcorn. Then I sprinkled a mix of some grated Parmesan cheese and granulated garlic on top. Oh mama, this was so good. It seriously tasted like white cheddar popcorn. My entire family loved it! If you want to leave off the cheese for a lighter option and just use garlic, you will still have a tasty popcorn treat.
Photos of Parmesan Garlic Popcorn recipe:
½ cup popcorn kernels
¼ cup peanut or olive oil
2 tablespoons I Can Believe It's Not Butter, melted
2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese
1 teaspoon granulated garlic
½ teaspoon salt
Heat the oil in a large pot covered with a clear lid. Place one kernel in the pot as it heats. When that kernel pops carefully pour in the rest of the kernels. Give the pot a couple shakes as it cooks. The popcorn with pop quickly so keep an eye on it. After the kernels pop pour the popcorn into a large bowl. Drizzle the melted I Can't Believe It's Not Butter on top. Mix together the Parmesan, granulated garlic, and salt. Sprinkle and toss it together with the popcorn. Enjoy.
