Savory Popcorn With Fresh Herbs: A Healthy (and Gluten-Free) Snack

I love to snack while I work, but try to keep it healthy. This Savory Popcorn Recipe is one of my favorites, great for when you have leftover fresh herbs in your fridge.

Savory Herb Popcorn Recipe Healthy Gluten Free Snack

Today, I used Skinnygirl Butter & Sea Salt popcorn, fresh basil and thyme, but you can substitute your favorite popcorn and just about any fresh herb -- rosemary, oregano or even cilantro --  in their place.

 If you like your popcorn cheesy, you can also sprinkle some fresh grated parmesan over the popcorn and munch away.



Small bag of Popcorn (5-6 cups popped)
1 Teaspoon fresh basil cut into small pieces
1 Teaspoon fresh thyme leaves
1 Teaspoon granulated garlic (more or less to taste)
1 Tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
Optional add-ons: grated parmesan cheese, sea salt, paprika

Savory Herb Popcorn Recipe Healthy Gluten Free Snack


1.  Pop the popcorn according to the package's instructions.

2.  Chop the basil into small pieces. (I use my kitchen shears to cut up my leafy spices).

3.  Put the olive oil, basil and thyme into a small microwave-safe bowl and microwave on High for 15 seconds.  This will infuse the oil with the flavor of the fresh herbs.

4.  Using a teaspoon, sprinkle the olive oil/herb mixture over the popcorn, stirring the popcorn as you sprinkle to evenly distribute the herbs and flavored oil.

5.  Sprinkle the popcorn with the garlic powder, and with the optional sea salt, parmesan cheese or paprika, if you like.

6.  Enjoy!
