Added to Recipes on Thu 06/24/2010


Makes 4 servings; 61 calories per serving, 10 percent from fat

1/2 cup popcorn kernels
Flavored cooking spray (butter, olive oil or garlic)
Garlic salt or cinnamon


Place popcorn in a 2 and 1/2-quart microwave-safe container; cover and cook at high power 4 to 5 minutes, or until popcorn is popped but not scorched. If the microwave oven does not have a rotating turntable, use oven mitts to grasp and shake the covered container after 3 minutes of cooking. Immediately pour the popcorn onto a baking sheet and coat with cooking spray.


To further flavor the popcorn, immediately sprinkle on your favorite seasoning blend such as garlic salt or cinnamon.
