Looking for an update to plain old popcorn but still wanting it to be healthy? Look no further! You won’t miss the butter, high fat or preservatives that’s normally found in store-bought popcorn. The turmeric has a curry-like flavor and if you don’t like parsley, just substitute it with chives. Give this one a try, I think you’ll really like it!
- 2 tsp. olive oil
- ¼ cup popcorn kernels
- 2 Tbs. olive oil
- ¼ cup finely chopped parsley
- 1 tsp. ground turmeric
Heat olive oil in 3-quart saucepan on medium heat. Add popcorn kernels, and cover pan; Cook 2 to 3 minutes, or until intervals between pops slow to 2 to 3 seconds, shaking occasionally. Transfer popcorn to large bowl.
Gently warm olive oil in the still-hot saucepan. Add parsley, and stir to combine, then add turmeric, and season with salt, if desired.
