10 Guilt-Free Recipes from The Skinny
Piquant and crunchy, this won't bore you even if you eat it all. Luckily you can eat a lot of popcorn without guilt. Leftovers, if there are any, will keep for a week when stored airtight at room temperature. A resealable plastic freezer bag works well.Addictive Spiced Popcorn
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Makes: 4 servings
1 1/2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
1 teaspoon sweet paprika
1/4 teaspoon coarse sea salt or kosher salt
1/8 teaspoon ground cumin
Tiny pinch cayenne
1/2 cup popcorn kernels
1. In a large pot over medium-high heat combine oil, paprika, salt, cumin, cayenne, and popcorn. Stir well, coating the popcorn kernels evenly with the oil and spices.
2. Cover the pot and shake back and forth over the burner until most of the kernels have popped (the popping should slow to one pop every 2 seconds), 3 to 5 minutes.
3. Transfer the popcorn immediately to a serving bowl. Taste; adjust the seasoning, if necessary.
