This zesty and fresh-tasting popcorn recipe will have you licking your fingers!
  • 1 tsp. dried basil
  • ¼ tsp. sweet paprika
  • ¼ heaping tsp. onion powder
  • ¼ tsp. garlic powder
  • ⅛ tsp. kosher salt
  • Pinch of ground cayenne
  • 3 tsp. oil from jar of oil-packed sun-dried tomatoes (preferably in olive oil)
  • ½ tsp. honey
  • ⅛ tsp. spicy brown mustard
  • 4 cups bagged popcorn
  • In a large bowl, whisk together the basil, paprika, onion and garlic powder, salt, and cayenne.
  1. In a large rimmed, non-stick skillet, heat the oil and honey on medium-low, stirring with the back of a large wooden spoon until emulsified and small bubbles form, 1-2 minutes. Remove from heat, and stir in the mustard. Because of the acidic content of the mustard, it will sizzle a bit—just be sure to stir it in as quickly as possible.
  2. Add the popcorn, and toss until kernels are equally glazed. Quickly transfer popcorn to the large bowl with the spice mixture. Toss until fully coated.
  3. Store in a zip-top bag for 1 day, though it’s definitely best enjoyed the day of.
  4. Mix it Up: Add some freshly shaved Parmigiano-Reggiano to kick it up a notch.
