A sweet and salty snack that’s ready in about five minutes! Enjoy as is or sprinkle with cayenne for a kick!
- 1/2 C. popcorn kernels
- 2 T. non-hydrogenated margarine (I use Earth Balance.)
- 2 T. agave syrup
- 1/4 t. salt
- pinch cayenne (optional)
Pop kernels using an air popper or microwave. Note: If using an air popper, follow instructions that came with machine. If using a microwave, scoop 1/4 C. of popcorn kernels into paper bag, roll top to close and microwave on high until popping stops. Repeat with remaining 1/4 C.
While popcorn is popping, melt butter in small saucepan over medium heat. Once melted, remove from heat and stir in agave syrup and salt.
Toss popped corn with agave-butter mixture to coat. For a spicy kick, sprinkle with optional cayenne.
