sounds yummy!-21 Jul 2013

by pinkfashionista28

This popcorn is a very very delicious, savory snack. For those of you who are not familiar with nutritional yeast, it tastes similar to parmesan cheese and it is very healthy, low-fat, and it has lots of amino acids. It can be found in natural food stores or health stores. I used air-popped popcorn, cut the amount of margarine in half, and it still tasted fabulous! So quick and easy to make. I will be making this often!-04 Nov 2003

by Denise Rutledge

This is a great twist on the way I have seasoned popcorn for years. I picked up a great trick years ago that makes it even better. Heat the oil and popcorn together until the first kernel pops. Take the pan off the heat and stir in 2-4 Tbsp. of dairy-free margarine. As soon as the margarine melts put the lid on and put the pan back on the heat. Shake frequently. The buttery flavor will be evenly spread over the popcorn, and the popcorn will pop up large with fewer "old maids".-21 Feb 2007

10 Healthy Microwave Popcorn Recipes

There's been considerable buzz lately about the health benefits of both popcorn and coconut oil. Today's post combines both of these in an easy microwave method for making 10 different popcorn flavors. A 2-cup serving size of each of these recipes is 100 calories or less, making them a great choice for a healthy, figure-friendly snack.

DIY Microwave Popcorn. For several years now, I've been making my own microwave popcorn without the bags, waste, and mystery ingredients of the store-bought bags of microwave popcorn. I explained my method and it's benefits in detail in a previous post:

You can check out my Popcorn Recipe Index for a list of numerous versions of sweet and savory popcorn that I've made in the past. I still like them all. But, today I want to share a new way that I'm making microwave popcorn that is healthier.

Flavor without high calories and fat. A small unbuttered popcorn at the movies typically has more than 650 calories a large has 1,200. Yikes. Those calories are almost all from the oil and flavoring used to cook it. Although you can find low-calorie microwave popcorn packets, they are normally loaded with salt and mystery ingredients. Popcorn itself is a healthy snack that is often made unhealthy with oil, butter, salt, and other high calorie toppings. In today's recipes, I'm sharing an easy technique for adding a limitless number of flavors with few or no added calories.

Popcorn is a smart snack (minus the butter and additives).

  • It is a whole, unprocessed grain and full of fiber.
  • It is packed with polyphenols (same ones found in red wine) more antioxidants than found in similar weight of fruits and vegetables
  • It's antioxidants can have a wide range of effects in fighting cancer, diabetes, cardiovascular and neuro-degenerative diseases (Alzheimer's)

Coconut oil is a healthy choice. Until fairly recently coconut oil was considered a bad oil because it is 90% saturated fat. But recent scientific findings indicate that coconut oil is a "good fat." To be clear, it's not low in calories. All fats & oils, good for you or not, have approximately 120 calories and 13 grams of fat per tablespoon. However, there are considerable potential health benefits to a "good" oil or fat. Here's what I've been reading about coconut oil:

  • It may actually help promote weight loss because it metabolizes better than fats from other oils.
  • It can raise our good cholesterol.
  • It contains polyphenols (like popcorn) more antioxidants!
  • It can help fight bacteria, fungal infections, and boost your immune system.
  • It can help you absorb calcium and magnesium.
  • It can help stabilize blood sugar levels.
  • It can nourish your skin and hair.

Popcorn and Coconut Oil. Dr. Oz recommends adding 1 tablespoon of coconut oil per day to your diet to enjoy its health benefits. One way to do that is with my popcorn recipes. In the recipes below, for every 6 cups of popped corn I have substituted 1 tablespoon of coconut oil for the tablespoon of butter I used before. Not only has that transformed my popcorn into a healthier snack, but it tastes fantastic! The coconut oil gives the popcorn a great flavor. I love it. If you are a coconut hater (I know they're out there, because I'm married to one), I still recommend that you give coconut oil a try. When distributed over an entire batch of popcorn, it adds a pleasant taste with a hint of sweetness. It doesn't have a strong coconut flavor at all. Coconut Hater King-Man gives this popcorn a thumbs-up, and he considers himself quite the popcorn connoisseur .

Although it's much lower in calories to make air-popped popcorn with no salt, oil, or butter frankly, that tastes like cardboard to me. I'm all for reducing calories and healthy eating, but I want my food to taste good, too. Today's recipes accomplish that.

How to Make
Microwave Popcorn with Coconut Oil (in 10 flavors)

Step 1. Assemble these ingredients and supplies:

  • popcorn kernels -- use fresh, good quality kernels to get the best popability and fewest unpopped kernels Trader Joe's and Whole Foods carry good organic brands
    available on Amazon, click here
  • coconut oil -- I use organic, extra virgin available in many grocery stores
    available on Amazon, click here
  • kosher salt -- my go-to salt for cooking and baking widely available at grocery stores
    available on Amazon, click here
  • seasonings, extracts, and flavors -- specifics are included with individual recipes further down in the post
  • microwave-safe bowl -- If you use a glass bowl, make sure it is tempered glass and can handle the high heat. If your glass bowl isn't up to the task, it can explode. Not good. For years, I've used an Anchor 2.5 quart mixing bowl--it came in a set of 3 bowls,
    available on Amazon, click here
  • vented microwave food cover -- The one I have can be used flat, or the sides pop up to make a dome as pictured below. It is essential that the lid has vent holes.As the popcorn kernels heat, the steam generated is extremely hot. If the lid isn't vented, intense heat can build up and cause the bowl to explode. These covers are handy for containing heat and splatters with all kinds of microwaving.
    available on Amazon, click here

Specific amounts of each ingredient are listed with the recipes of each flavored popcorn they are further down in this post. Click on the big purple bar below each flavor and that links to the printable recipe with detailed ingredients and instructions.

Step 2. Add coconut oil and salt to the bowl. Microwave it for approx. 30 seconds, until the coconut oil melts.

Step 3. Remove from microwave, add popcorn kernels and stir so that the kernels are evenly coated and in a single layer on the bottom of the bowl. (This is an important trick to my microwave method. Cooking the kernels in the salted oil results in the flavors getting cooked onto each popcorn kernel. No need to add salt at the end.)

Step 4. Cover the bowl with the vented lid and microwave on high for 3-5 minutes, or until there are 1-2 seconds between pops. The time will vary depending on your microwave and bowl, so you may need some trial-and-error on the first batch or 2 to figure out how long it takes the popcorn to cook. My 1100-watt microwave takes 3 minutes, 40 seconds. If you pop a second bowl right away, it won't take as long because of the residual heat in the microwave and bowl.

WARNING: The glass bowl gets extremely hot. Use hot pads to remove it from the microwave.

Adding flavors. You may prefer your popcorn plain (like King-Man) or jazzed up with additional flavors (like me). Here are the easy methods I used in the 10 recipes in this post.

  • Method 1 for adding flavors: Cook the flavors onto the popcorn as it pops. There are some spices and seasonings that can be stirred into the melted coconut oil along with the unpopped kernels. The spices get toasted to bring out their flavor while they get evenly distributed on the popcorn as it pops. I used this method for the Fiesta Popcorn recipe, shown below. I added taco seasoning to the melted coconut oil before popping the corn. Then I followed the same procedures described above. Easy! Don't worry if some of the seasoning and kernels are left in the bottom of the bowl my recipes account for that. Here's how I made Fiesta Popcorn using Method 1:

Some flavors can't be cooked with the popcorn, because the high heat will cause them to scorch and burn. Here are some alternative methods for adding flavors.

  • Method 2for adding flavors -- Put flavored extracts (like vanilla or almond) into small, travel-size mister bottles. While the cooked popcorn is still hot, lightly spray the extracts onto the popcorn. You can also do this with flavored oils use a ratio of 1/2 oil to 1/2 water in a small mister bottle and give it a shake before spraying. Don't overdo it, or you'll make the popcorn soggy. But, the liquid from a light misting will evaporate from the heat of the popcorn and just leave behind flavor. Look for travel-size misters at the drug store.
    Small misters are available on Amazon, click here

  • Method 3 for adding flavors -- You can also add solid flavored ingredients to the popcorn after it is popped as along as they have a powder-like consistency so that they will cling to the popcorn. I used powdered buttermilk, cocoa mix, protein powder, and powdered sugar in my recipes. None of these can be cooked with the popcorn without scorching them, but they can be sprinkled on while the popcorn is still hot. The steam from the popcorn helps them stick. (I tried using granulated sugars and sweeteners, and they simply wouldn't stick--they fell to the bottom of the bowl. A powdery consistency is key to having evenly coated flavors on the popcorn.) I put my powdered flavors into spice shaker bottles to lightly sift them onto the popcorn. You could also use a strainer or sifter. However, it's really handy to have these filled shaker bottles ready to use whenever I make popcorn.
    --small spice shaker bottles available on Amazon, click here
    --larger shaker for powered sugar available on Amazon, click here

Additional tips:

  • Blend your seasonings to a finer consistency. If you are using spices or leafy dried herbs that aren't already finely ground, put them in your blender or food processor and give them a whirl to make them finer. This will help them stay mixed into your popcorn. I used the small container that came with my smoothie blender to further grind some of my herbs. It worked great.
  • Blend parmesan cheese to a powder like consistency. Again use a blender or food processor for this. I normally shun the dry parmesan cheese that comes in a can but it works much better on popcorn than the freshly grated kind. The dry cheese can be reduced to a powder consistency much better. (I tried several powdered cheeses, and have yet to find one that is both healthy and tastes good. If you know of one, please share!)
  • Add healthy supplements to your popcorn for a nutrition boost.
    --protein powder (used in my vanilla popcorn recipe),
    available in several flavors on Amazon, click here
    --finely ground chia seeds, available on Amazon, click here
    --nutritional (or brewer's) yeast adds a cheesy flavor, available on Amazon, click here

These are great to take along to work or make for after-school snacks. Make up a variety of flavors for a party and let guests choose their favorite. I used waxed paper bags from Whole Foods. You can find similar options on Amazon, click here.

NOTE: The exact calorie count of each flavor will vary slightly. If you follow my recipes, none of these will exceed 100 calories with a 2 cup portion most fall below that. Check each recipe for specific calories.

Hope you enjoy these healthy snacks as much as I do. Let me know your favorite flavor or if you invent a new variety of your own. The best ideas come from Yummy readers. Love you guys!

How to Include in our Diet?

There are many ways to include it in our diet. The easiest is popped amaranth. Amaranth popcorn is a great snack as it is and also a great add on to a lot of food. Add it to salads, veggie burger patties, to chocolate barks, topping on cereal for some extra crunch and nutrition.

Couple of days ago I had some left over toffee custard from banoffie pie. My breakfast that day was a sweet breakfast, mixed fruits with some toffee custard topped with lots of popped amaranth.

Porridge is another great way to include amaranth into daily diet. I cooked amaranth without soaking it and it was good but I do want to experiment with it a bit more, perhaps soak the seeds overnight for a smooth porridge.

Use amaranth just like quinoa but only difference between the two pseudo grains is that amaranth does not retain its shape after cooking like quinoa does. Nonetheless, it is a wonderful seed to include in your diet. Use amaranth in dishes in place of pasta or rice. Add it to soups and smoothies.

1. Put the oil in a large pot and add the popcorn kernels. Cover the pot with a tight-fitting lid and heat over medium heat. Once the popping starts, shake the pot occasionally until the popping subsides. Transfer the popcorn to 2 large bowls, divide the melted butter between them and toss to coat.

Parmesan Herb Popcorn

1. For the Parmesan herb popcorn: Combine the Parmesan, Italian seasoning, red pepper flakes and a sprinkle of seasoned salt in a small bowl. Sprinkle on top of 1 of the bowls of buttered popcorn and toss to coat. Makes: 15 cups

Cinnamon Sugar Popcorn

1. For the cinnamon sugar popcorn: Combine the sugar, cinnamon and salt in a small bowl. Sprinkle over the second bowl of buttered popcorn and toss to coat. Drizzle over the caramel syrup. Makes: 15 cups

Salted Caramel Popcorn Recipe

The salted caramel popcorn is here to give you your all-time favorite snack with a different twist. I simply love it when the popcorn kernels are served in a variety of flavors, and for this reason, I myself keep on experimenting with new popcorn recipes. The salt caramel popcorn was a must to try as we all want to enjoy it at home. The homemade caramel popcorn is healthier than the market bought popcorns, and you can also adjust their flavors according to your own liking.

The salted caramel popcorn recipe that I am going to share today is a time tested one, and whenever I don’t feel like cooking for snack time, I use this recipe to serve my family an instant and quick treat with lots of flavors, and aroma. Let’s find out how you can turn freshly popped popcorn into a delicious caramel coated one.
