Forget boring old salted or toffee. There are endless exciting, healthy popcorn flavours to choose from – so long as you make it yourself! And it couldn’t be easier (or cheaper) to do…

Ingredients

Chilli Powder

1 teaspoons, level

Plain Popcorn (no added oil or flavours)

80 g

Ground Cumin

1 teaspoons, level

Paprika

1 teaspoons, level

Garlic Granules

1½ g

Salt

½ teaspoons

Calorie controlled cooking spray

4 spray(s)

Instructions

  1. Pop the popcorn kernels in an air popper, if you have one. Otherwise, put the kernels in a large microwave-safe bowl and cover with a vented lid or a plate. Microwave on high for 3-4 minutes, or until there’s about 5 seconds between pops. Be careful when you take the lid off , as it’ll be steaming hot!
  2. Mix together the chilli powder, cumin, smoked paprika, garlic powder and salt. Mist the popcorn with cooking spray and toss with the spices to coat.

Notes

Get ahead with snacks by making a larger batch of popcorn - once cooled, it will keep in an airtight container for 2-3 days.
