Sriracha Popcorn Recipe
Today I spent time testing out a Sriracha popcorn recipe while wearing my Halloween costume #2…a Sriracha bottle! It was pretty fun making the cap…check out this arts n crafts skillz!
This is what the final product turned out like! What do you think?! Do you like this one or the Sailor Moon outfit better?
By the way…I am dying to wear those boots more. It is still hot in CA! And nearly November! I’m not complaining though… 🙂
So anyway, here’s what my healthy Sriracha popcorn looked like:
It was so tangy and hot and good! Here’s the recipe:
1/2 lemon juice squeezed, 1 tsp sriracha (or more if you want it spicy), and about 1 TBSP of crushed garlic seasoning or powder.
Just pop your popcorn in the microwave. I got 94% fat free popcorn from Trader Joes since it was more convenient, but, what you can do if you wanna go fat free is buy the kernels, throw them in a brown paper bag, close it up, and microwave just like that! That’s true air-popped no butter.
After you get your popcorn, simply spray the lemon-sriracha concoction all over it and sprinkle with garlic. In the video, I just poured it and some of the corn got soggy, so make sure you lightly spray! And eat right away. REALLY GOOD!
Or if you wanna try the original Sriracha Popcorn from theoatmeal.com, you can get it here. It’s $5.99 a bag though! That’s kinda nuts.
So I found a recipe that you can try at home at bakeyourday.net:
2 Tbs. butter
1 Tbs. olive oil
1 Tbs. Sriracha sauce
1 tsp. sesame seeds + more for garnish
1 tsp. garlic powder
1/2 tsp. ground ginger
4 cups popped popcorn (see note below)
Salt to taste
Check their website above for full directions!
Popcorn is a great, light, healthy snack if you ever get the munchies. Just be careful of the butter and sodium content!
Have a fab Monday! I will be working hard on your #NutsInNovember calendar the next couple days. Anything new you want on there?
<3 you so much!
