  • 4 cups plain popped Popcorn
  • 2 tablespoon Avocado Oil (Or Olive oil)
  • 1 1/2 tbsp (15 mL) finely chopped fresh rosemary
  • 1 garlic clove
  • 1 Tablespoon grated Parmesan cheese
  • Black pepper to taste

Makes 4


  1. In a small pot over medium-high heat add Avocado oil, Rosemary and garlic.
  2. Lightly simmer about 1 minute until garlic begins to turn golden and herbs are fragrant.
  3. Remove from heat and pour infused oil with herbs and garlic into a shallow dish and set aside.
  4. Put 4 cups plain popped popcorn in a large mixing bowl.
  5. Pour warm garlic-rosemary Infused oil over the top and 1 tablespoon Parmesan cheese. Stir until well combined.

Note: There are many methods for popping popcorn. Hot air popcorn poppers do not require any oil and therefore make a light and low calorie result. If you choose to prepare your popcorn on the stove top, with added oil, keep in mind the additional calories and fat that will be added to your end result

Tips: Avocado oil can be found in specialty markets, Natural Foods stores or even in your local Large Warehouse store. Avocado oil is high in monounsaturated fat (good fat) and it has a high smoke point making it ideal for sauteing, grilling or other high-heat cooking.
