Whether you’re settling down in front of a movie or simply sharing a snack with friends, serving popcorn is always a good choice. Not only is it a delicious crowd-pleaser, but it is also healthy. At least it is if you don’t smother it in butter to counteract the high-fiber, low-fat benefits.
Instead of adding lots of butter and salt, I like to add some flavor with ground herbs and spices, with just a touch of butter or oil to help the spices stick. One of my current favorites? This garlic herb popcorn seasoning.
Hint: Scale up the recipe to make a full jar and pair with some popcorn kernels for a fun host(ess) gift!
2 teaspoons garlic powder
1 ½ teaspoon dried oregano
1 teaspoon dried rosemary
¼ teaspoon dried dill seed
½ teaspoon salt
Using a spice grinder (or a coffee grinder in a pinch), crush the oregano, rosemary and dill into a powder. Combine all ingredients in a small jar and cover until ready to sprinkle over lightly-buttered popcorn.
I like to sprinkle a little of the Lawry's seasoning salt on my popcorn. It tastes great. My kids love it too!!
I like to sprinkle a little cayenne pepper on mine...these all sound good too!
I love spicing up my popcorn to! My fave is white cheddar and chives :D
I love to put Parmesan cheese and Italian seasoning on mine!
We use ranch or caesar salad dressing mixes to flavor our popcorn. It only takes about 1 tsp. of mix to flavor a bag of popcorn, and it tastes so good.
Sounds good....and healthy!!
I'm going to try this tonight for our family movie night. Thanks! Would love to find some sweet recipes for popcorn too.
