Palm Oil Free (super easy!) Microwave Popcorn!

You might not expect that many microwave popcorn brands, for example Orville Redenbacher’s, contain the destructive palm oil. Well they do. But don’t panic! There is an easy solution:

For one plain serving:

  1. In a small bowl, combine 1/2 cup popcorn kernels, a teaspoon or so of olive oil or melted butter & some salt. Mix.
  2. Pour mixture into a brown paper bag.
  3. Fold bag several times and tape closed.
  4. Microwave using “Popcorn” button. If you don’t have that button, try 1 or 2 minutes, but be ready to shut it off when the popping slows down!

THAT’S IT! Simple. And you can flavor it any way you want.

To add flavors:

  1. SPICY: add spices directly to bowl of oil/kernels/salt. Continue as you did with the plain.
  2. HERBS: add sprigs of fresh herbs to the bowl of oil/kernels/salt. Allow to infuse for 5 minutes. Make sure all the herbs are coated in oil so they don’t burn! Continue as you did with the plain.
  3. SWEET: add 1-2 tsp of maple syrup to the bowl of oil/kernel/salt. Continue as you did with the plain.
  4. CHEESY: add some grated parmesan cheese to the bowl of oil/kernel/salt. Continue as with the plain.

It’s healthier, cheaper, easy, delicious, and palm oil free! Give it a try!

Comment if you invent any other flavors!

Have fun!
