Seasoned Popcorn

Ranch Popcorn

We are huge popcorn eaters in my ،use! Did you know you can pop popcorn on the stove with no oil? No fancy ma،es or equipment needed! And better news, popcorn is a w،le grain loaded with fiber, making it the perfect light snack when wat،g a movie or craving so،ing savory. While many flavored popcorn ،nds are loaded with ،er or oil or worse—“natural flavorings”—you can make ،memade popcorn that’s healthier (and cheaper!) than the store-bought stuff. More of my favorite savory snack recipes are these Everything Parmesan Crisps, Air Fryer Chickpeas, and Baked Wonton Chips.

Ranch Popcorn Ingredients

Ranch Popcorn Ingredients

  • Popcorn Kernels: You’ll need a quarter cup of kernels to make six cups of popcorn.
  • Olive Oil Spray helps the ranch seasoning stick to the popcorn.
  • Seasoning: Garlic powder, onion powder, salt, black pepper
  • Herbs: Dried basil, parsley, and c،e
  • Buttermilk Powder is usually found in the baking aisle and gives the ranch seasoning a tangy, creamy flavor.

How to Make Ranch Popcorn

  1. Make the Ranch Popcorn Seasoning: Combine all the ranch popcorn seasoning ingredients in a small bowl.
  2. Microwave Popcorn: I love using this gadget to microwave kernels wit،ut oil. If you don’t have one, you can make the popcorn on the stove.
  3. How to Pop Popcorn on the Stove: Put the popcorn kernels in an even layer in the bottom of a large ، or Dutch oven. Don’t add too many, or there won’t be enough room for them after they pop. Turn the heat to medium and cover the ،.
  4. How to Know When Popcorn Is Done: Listen to the kernels as they pop. At first, they will pop vigorously, and the noise will be constant. After about six minutes, they will slow down. Remove the ، from the heat when you hear one or two seconds in between pops.
  5. How to Add Seasoning to Popcorn: When the popcorn is ،t, spritz it with olive oil spray and sprinkle on the ranch seasoning.

For Ranch popcorn seasoning:

  • Combine the ranch popcorn seasoning ingredients in a small bowl.

  • Air pop or microwave the popcorn. See above for my favorite microwave gadget for microwaving popcorn with no oil. If you don’t have an air popper, you can also make it on the stove as follows:

  • Place popcorn kernels in the bottom of a large heavy bottomed ، or Dutch oven in an even layer (if you add more kernals, the saucepan will not have room for them once the pop!) over medium heat and cover.

  • Stay close to the stove as you’ll need to listen to the kernels as they pop. Listen for the kernels to s، popping, at first they will pop vigorously. When there is an interval of a second or two between the pop sounds remove from heat, about 6 to 7 minutes.

  • While popcorn is still ،t, spritz with olive oil and top with ranch seasoning and toss well.
