Easy Popcorn
Prep: 1 mins
Cook: 3 mins
Serves: 2
Homemade popcorn is so much cheaper and healthier than store bought!


  • 2 tbs plain popping corn


  1. Put popcorn in a paper bag and fold down the top a couple of times
  2. Microwave on HIGH for about 2 minutes or until most or the corn has popped (if there's 3 or 4 seconds between popping noises, it's probably done)
  3. Be careful when opening the bag, the steam will be hot!
  4. Eat the popcorn plain or try some of the flavours below


  • Curry popcorn: toss warm popcorn with a little cumin, chilli and coriander or your favourite curry powder
  • Sriracha popcorn: sriracha is an Asian chilli garlic sauce that is delicious on popcorn. Toss in a little sriracha just before serving (it will go soggy if left too long)
  • Cheese and herb: sprinkle parmesan, garlic powder and shredded basil over fresh popcorn
Serving Suggestion: Add to dried fruit and nuts for a great trail mix
Comment: This makes about 4 cups of popcorn

Healthy tip!

Having a party? Serve vegie sticks and water crackers with salsa rather than high-fat chips and dips.
