Power Food: Rosemary

Prep Time: 5 min. | Cook Time: 5 min. | Total Time: 10 min. | Serves: 6 | Serving Size: 2½ cups

Free From: Gluten, Dairy, Soy

Ingredients:

  • 2 Tbsps. extra virgin coconut oil (EVCO), divided
  • 1 cup un-popped popcorn kernels, non-GMO
  • 1 tsp. sea salt
  • 2 Tbsp. rosemary leaves, finely chopped

 

Directions:

  1. Melt 1 tablespoon of the EVCO in a large stockpot on medium heat for about 1 minute with 3-4 popcorn kernels and cover the pot with a tight-fitting lid. Shake the pot back and forth wearing oven mitts every few seconds until all the initial kernels pop. Remove the initial popped popcorn and add the remaining un-popped popcorn kernels. Cover and shake periodically until all of the kernels have popped and popping has slowed to one or two pops every few seconds. Note- for an even lighter option you can air-pop the popcorn.
  2. Remove the pot from the heat. Add the remaining EVCO, sea salt and any other toppings of choice. Cover and shake well until popcorn is well mixed.

*Health Buzz: *Nutritional Yeast: Can be found at your health food store, it looks like “fish flakes” (as my kids say), odd I know but it’s loaded with B vitamins and gives food a cheesy-like flavour!
