Trying to eat healthy again but are still craving for a snack? Do not ignore the appetite! Just stay away from the tipical sweets or chocolate. Popcorn is you friend even in healthy days! There is more pop to it than the basic salt or sugared version.
This is our favorite popcorn recipe, ready in just a few minutes!
- 1/2 cup corn kernels
- 2 – 4 tablespoons butter
- 1/2 teaspoon BBQ Popcorn Seasoning (or even more to taste)
- A pinch of brown sugar
Heat half of the butter and half kernels of corn in a large covered stock pot over medium heat. When the kernels have popped, after 2-3 minutes, turn up the heat a little and add the remaining kernels, cover, and continuously shake the pot. I use pot holder-clad hands to simultaneously shake and hold the lid on.
Now its important that you are really fast: After the popping has slowed add the residual butter, wait a few seconds and then turn the popcorn into a large bowl. Season immediately and mix thoroughly.
In case you are on a strict diet feel free to ignore the brown sugar.
