This is snacking heaven! Popcorn is always fun to eat; it’s high in fiber and depending on what you put on it, it becomes a gourmet treat for when your friends drop by… not that you’ll need an excuse to make it or someone to help you eat it as its so delicious and easy to assemble.
This popcorn is 100 times better than the stuff covered with yellow ‘gloop’ (euphemistically referred to as ‘melted butter’) that you get at the movies; even without the melted ‘butter’, its overloaded with sodium and according to my taste buds, sugar.
In the same way that truffle parmesan french fries have become increasingly popular in restaurants these days – and rightly so, they’re scrumptious – why not elevate your popcorn to the same level?
This recipe comes courtesy of my good friend Shannon – thank you.
