Chilli Lemon Popcorn

chilli lemon popcorn

It's the 89th Academy Awards this weekend so in honour of Hollywood's biggest night, I thought I'd share this Oscar worthy savoury popcorn, which combines delicate lemon with spicy chilli.

Three great health benefits: source of fibre, source of antioxidants, boosts immunity

Makes 1 large bowl
Best enjoyed warm (in front of a movie!) but the popcorn also keeps for a day or so in an airtight container.

Ingredients:
1 tsp coconut oil
1/2 cup popcorn kernels
1/2 tsp hot chilli powder
Zest of 2 unwaxed lemons, finely grated

Method:
1) Place the coconut oil in a large saucepan (you'll need a bigger one than you might think & it's really important that it has a lid too or else you'll end up with popcorn all over the place!). Heat over a medium high hob.
2) Once the oil has warmed, add two or three of the kernels. Place the lid on top of the saucepan and wait for a minute or so, until the kernels have popped. Remove the two or three popped kernels with a spoon.
3) Pour in the remaining popcorn kernels and replace the lid of the saucepan. Reduce the heat to medium. This is the fun bit as you'll start to hear the popcorn popping!
4) After a few minutes, or once the rate of the popping sound has slowed down, remove from the heat. Most of the popcorn kernels should have popped. Remove any un-popped kernels and discard.
5) Pour the popcorn into a large bowl and add the chilli and lemon toppings. Stir well to combine thoroughly.
