Just like so many other gluten free individuals, I am going dairy free, and meat free (*gasp* for those of you who know me; but don't worry, I don't think it's a permanent change) for a bit to balance out my lovely digestive system, actually I want to see if it's part of my one issue that has not cleared up yet. Even though all of us gluten-intolerant people could hold our own in the nursing home discussion of exit strategies; I will not share mine here. ;)
I wanted a popcorn snack, but I am a die hard butter and salt girl, but my resolution to stay dairy free is a firm one, so I put this together.
I ate this and immediately I wanted to make another batch. If I do go back to dairy, I will be hard pressed to decide which way I want my popcorn!! Experiment and see what you come up with...
Sweet and Spicy Popcorn
(I pop my popcorn the Alton Brown way: paper bag, 1/3 cup corn, fold down edge, put in 2 staples, pop as long as your microwave needs. Mine is 2 minutes and 30 seconds.)
Sprinkle olive oil, granulated garlic, sugar, kosher salt, and cayenne pepper (I think a smoky chipotle powder would be to-die-for, but I didn't have any.) over popped popcorn.
Eat. And you won't miss the butter.
