It’s full of fiber, gluten-free, is quick to make and a convenient on-the-go snack.  If you’re looking for a delicious twist on your favorite popcorn recipe, try adding one of your favorite herbs or spices.  It’s really easy and adds a huge amount of flavor. Here’s one of my favorite new recipes, Rosemary Parmesan Popcorn. I dare say, it’s some of the best popcorn I’ve ever tried!

Step 1: Place butter & rosemary in microwave safe bowl. Melt in microwave (approx 30 seconds).

Step 2: Add popcorn kernels and stir to evenly coat. Cover bowl with plastic wrap & punch a few SMALL holes in the top to allow steam to escape. (Caution: I made the holes too big and the popcorn started to escape as it popped!)Note: I had a last-minute idea to add a clove of finely chopped garlic to the bowl. I highly recommend doing it if you have some on hand.

Step 3: Microwave on high for anywhere from 3 minutes and 30 seconds to 5 minutes – depending on your microwave. Watch carefully and stop the microwave once the corn is all popped (more than 2-3 seconds between pops).

Step 4: Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese. (The stuff in the can apparently works the best for this application but I only had the real thing. It was just as good!) Oh, and I added a dash of salt & freshly cracked pepper after tasting and it was just what the popcorn needed for absolute perfection! I love this recipe!!!!
