Parmesan and Za'atar Popcorn

I was reading that two of the latest trends are creative popcorns and za'atar so I am right on target, in regard trends though I say create your own. Funny I never made popcorn until recently but it really is a great snack, easy to make and whole grain and high in fiber. The seasonings are endless from sweet to savory I worked a health fair recently and made a spicy chili popcorn to take that was popular, and fun to watch folks reactions to the spice. Its also a good afternoon snack for hungry kids.

Popping corn is a specific type of corn that pops when heated different from regular corn. I learnt this from a conference I attended in the summer from a popcorn farmer. It has been around for 100's of year and originated in Peru. 


  • 1/2 of unpopped popcorn 
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil 
  • 1/4 teaspoon za'atar 
  • 2 slices of parmesan grated 

  1. heat the oil in a pan with a lid, check to see if warm enough by adding a couple of kernels of corn, when they pop add 1/2 a cup of corn keep on a medium heat and cover with a lid
  2. gently move the pan and allow to pop 
  3. remove from the heat add the za'atar and parmesan 
  4. enjoy 

Have a wonderful weekend everyone :-)
