Rosemary & Garlic PopcornPosted: February 26, 2012
Oh my dearest Drieky… Every time I make this popcorn, I think of my best friend and her faith in all of my food. She told me once that it should be an appetizer. And you know what… She’s right. Why not have a savory popcorn dish for a starter? Is garlicky, herbaceous and buttery. And because I use Brummell & Brown yogurt spread, it’s a skosh bit healthier. It’s totally satisfying for a movie snack, and actually substantial enough for a first course. Why not? It’s a whole grain… lol! The truth is, I believe there is always wiggle room for popcorn.
2T Brummell & Brown yogurt spread
2 cloves garlic (minced)
1 large sprig of rosemary minced
Pinch of salt
1. In a cold sauce pan, add the Brummel & Brown, rosemary and minced garlic. Turn the heat to medium, bring to a bubble and then reduce to simmer and make the popcorn.
2. Pop popcorn in a hot air popcorn popper. Alternatively, you can use a fat free microwave popcorn. Or go old school and cook it stove top style (it’s my favorite. Google it).
3. Toss the popcorn with the garlic rosemary mixture. Top with Parmesan–to you liking (I go for about a 1/4 cup) and toss again. If you like heat, throw in some fresh cracked pepper. Top with salt to your liking.
4. Grab some napkins and grub out!!
