Around these parts, we love popcorn more than most things. Jeff loves it like you’d get it in a movie theater – some butter and some salt. I, however, have always liked it a little different. I used to live cinnamon sugar on it, but lately I’ve been experimenting with other options – most recently with lemon zest and chopped parsley.
We use an air popper to make the actual popcorn, and then I tossed the popcorn with a little coconut oil, followed by light salt, pepper, and lemon zest. Toss that about well, and then add your parsley – delicious.
This easy snack is a great treat after work (while making dinner, anyone?) or as a lighter alternative to movie-snacking, which I know we all love. Don’t have coconut oil? Use olive oil, I swear it’s amazing. (Or if you have to, a lil’ butter. Whatever makes it have something to stick to!)
