Herbed popcorn is a yummy twist to the classic popcorn recipe. It almost tastes like chips! The combination of Parmesan, garlic salt and basil give off an aromatic saltiness to it. The walnuts on the other hand contribute more crunch and an added taste plus texture too.
5 tablespoons canola oil
1/2 cup un-popped popcorn kernels
2 tablespoons melted butter
1/2 teaspoon garlic salt
1/2 teaspoon dried basil
1/2 cup walnuts, roughly chopped
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
Heat the oil in a large pot or Dutch oven over medium heat. Add the popcorn and cover the pot. Once the corn kernels start popping, gently shake the pot over the burner. Keep the lid slightly open to release the steam. When the popping sounds slow down and the intervals last for a few seconds, remove the pot from the heat. Shake the pot while covered for a minute to make sure all the kernels pop. Transfer the popcorn to a large bowl and drizzle it with melted butter.
In a medium sized b bowl, combine the chopped walnuts, garlic salt, Parmesan and dried basil. Mix well. Add the herb and walnut mixture to the popcorn and gently toss until well combined. Serve warm. Add more garlic salt if desired.
