Spring Herb Popcorn
This savory snack is the perfect addition to your spring picnic menu.
- ¼ cup extra virgin olive oil plus more for drizzling
- 2 cloves garlic pressed
- 2 sprigs fresh oregano or ½ tsp dried
- 2 sprigs fresh thyme or ½ tsp dried
- 2 sprigs fresh rosemary or ½ tsp dried
- ½ cup popcorn kernels
- Sea salt
- Freshly cracked pepper
In a medium saucepan, bring olive oil, garlic, oregano, thyme and rosemary to a simmer over medium-low heat, stirring often. Cook until the mixture is fragrant and garlic has softened.
Add popcorn kernels in a single layer and cover saucepan with a lid. When the popcorn begins to pop (after about 2-3 minutes), shake the pot over the heat for about 3 minutes, until popping slows. Remove from heat immediately and let cool for 1 minute.
Over top, drizzle additional olive oil, sea salt and cracked pepper. Stir or toss popcorn with a wooden spoon to distribute the flavors. Serve.
