Parmesan Basil Popcorn healthy)

I went over to my mom's last week and we had a lot of fun experimenting with popcorn. It can be a healthy treat if you don't put too much butter or salt on it. It's a whole grain and it can actually have a variety of flavors. Plus, it's simple to make!

So we decided to call this popcorn week!

Our first installment is this awesome Parmesan Basil Popcorn. It tastes like really good Italian bread with the spices. I particularly liked the pop of the fresh basil. This would be a great dish as an appetizer for a fancy Italian meal.

Check back later this week for these other popcorn flavors:

Almond Joy Popcorn
Citrus Delight Popcorn
Aloha Tropical Popcorn
Apple Pie Popcorn

But now for the main feature of today . . .

Parmesan Basil Popcorn

4 C freshly air-popped popcorn
2 Tbsp coconut oil (or another oil of your choice)
1/4 C finely grated Parmesan cheese
1/4 tsp salt (you can always add more to your taste)
3 to 4 Tbsp chopped basil

1. Melt the coconut oil and slowly pour over the popcorn, tossing as you go.

2. Add the cheese, salt, and basil. Toss again.

3. Serve immediately.

Come back tomorrow for Almond Joy Popcorn for our Recipe Redux of the Month!
