Microwave Ghee Popcorn

Hey everyone! Hope you all are doing well. Weather is pleasant in my part of the world. Lately, I have been trying to explore healthier ingredients for our everyday cooking. It's a work in progress. Last post, I shared about a no added sugar Tomato Sauce product. Today, I'll share a healthier snack. Popcorn kernels. You can make homemade popcorn in a big pot on a stove-top or in a microwave. Let me share the way I made Popcorn in a microwave under 2 minutes.

If you are looking for snacks with no additives, this post is for you.


Popcorn Kernels

Ghee/Clarified Butter - 1 tsp


Black Pepper Powder

Microwave Popcorn

How to make Popcorn in a microwave:

  • In a microwave safe bowl, add 1/4 cup popcorn kernels, 1 tsp ghee, 1/8 tsp salt and 1/8 tsp black pepper. Cover the bowl with a lid or a plate. Microwave for 45 seconds. Bowl might be very hot. Keeping the lid on, shake the bowl for a few seconds. Microwave for another 45 seconds and your homemade Popcorn is ready to binge.
  • This is the way my 10 year old loves popcorn. Sometimes, I pack this as a school snack for my kiddo. Make sure popcorn is completely cooled down, before packing it in an airtight container.
  • Feel free to substitute ghee with butter or olive oil or coconut oil. Play with the seasonings of your choice, garlic powder, onion powder and so on.
