- 1/2 cup popcorn kernels
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 3 cloves garlic, minced
- 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
- Salt and pepper to taste
- Place a large pot on the stove over medium heat.
- Add the olive oil and three popcorn kernels to the pot. Cover it with a lid.
- When you hear the three kernels pop, it’s a sign that the oil is hot enough.
- Quickly add the rest of the popcorn kernels and give the pot a good shake to coat them with oil.
- Replace the lid and continue to shake the pot occasionally to prevent burning.
- Once the popping slows down to about 2 seconds between pops, remove the pot from the heat.
- In a separate pan, sauté the minced garlic until it’s fragrant and just starting to turn golden.
- Pour the garlic-infused olive oil over the popped popcorn and toss it to coat evenly.
- Sprinkle the grated Parmesan cheese over the popcorn while it’s still warm, so it adheres well.
- Season with salt and pepper to taste.
- Gently toss the popcorn again to distribute the flavors evenly.
- Now, your Savory Garlic Parmesan Popcorn is ready to enjoy!
