Popcorn is high in fiber, pleases the palette with a satisfying crunch, and can be flavored with healthy ingredients like paprika, cayenne, lemon pepper and more delicious seasonings. Skip the butter and sugary cookies… pop a batch of popcorn and enjoy as a quick snack or settle in for movie night!
1/4 cup freshly grated parmesan cheese
2 teaspoons paprika
Sea Salt and Pepper to taste
1 tbsp canola oil
1/4 cup popcorn kernels
Mix the parmesan, paprika, salt and pepper in small bowl and set aside.
Heat the canola oil and 3 popcorn kernels in medium saucepan over medium-high heat.
When 1-2 of the kernels pop, reduce the heat to medium and add the remaining kernels.
Cover and cook, shaking the pan occasionally, until popping subsides. (Approx 2 mins).
Transfer the popcorn to a large bowl lined with a paper towel.
Sprinkle with the parmesan mixture and toss.
