Feeling snacky? Popcorn can be anything from a healthy, high-fiber snack to a decadent treat...it all depends on how you dress it up. Get some inspiration from Kailee's family in today's installment of Quarantine Kitchen!

 

 

What you need:

  • Coconut oil
  • Shaker
  • Heavy-bottomed pot with lid

 

1. For a savory snack:

  • Butter, melted
  • Garlic powder
  • Fine sea salt

 

2. If you want it with a kick:

  • Avocado oil
  • Grated Parmesan cheese
  • BBQ seasoning

 

3. If you have a sweet tooth:

  • Butter, melted
  • Sugar
  • Cinnamon

 

What you do:
1. Heat 2 tablespoons of coconut oil on medium heat in a heavy-bottomed pot. Tip: Start with two popcorn kernels. Once those pop, your oil is hot enough.
2. Pour 1/3 – 1/2 cup of kernels into your pot.
3. Cover the pot with the lid and remove from heat for 30 seconds.
4. Return to heat. If possible, try to keep the lid slightly ajar to let out some steam – this will help keep your popcorn crispy.
5. Once popping slows, immediately pour popcorn into a bowl.
6. Choose one of the above recipes. Lightly drizzle popcorn with butter or oil, then gently sprinkle on seasonings and shake bowl to distribute evenly.
7. Enjoy!
