Popcorn: A good thing to do with olive oil spray

8 Aug

If you love popcorn and salt, but are grease, oil, fat and artificial additives averse, you are going to love this.

The secret ingredient for making air popped popcorn tasty good and salty is olive oil spray.

The important tool for this recipe is the microwave air popper.

Microwave popcorn popper

I bought mine at Target for about $8, and have used it often with love and gratitude. Thank you, Target!

Pour a half cup of popcorn into the popper,

1/2-cup popcorn

and microwave for about 4 minutes. Like with the bagged popcorn with the butter solids that inflates as it heats up, listen to the sound of the popping as it dies down to know when your microwave is finished heating the popcorn.

Now comes the good part.

Take a large bowl – I like my old pasta bowl. Pour part of the heated popcorn into the bowl,

and spray lightly with the olive oil. Then add a smattering of salt – I like Trader Joe’s sea salt.

Repeat until all popcorn has been sprayed and salted.

Then mix, pick out a great movie to watch and enjoy!

Thank you, Trader Joe’s!
