Herbed Popcorn


There are so many things to love about summer! No schedules, no homework and most of all, less time in the kitchen. We love to pack up and head to the mountains for a hike or to the pool to catch a few rays. My backpack is always full of healthy snacks, but it can be a bit of a challenge to keep it fresh and exciting when it comes to kids and adults. One of our favorite treats is popcorn. Its inexpensive, easy to make, and most of all super versatile when it comes to changing up the flavor. Here is one of our go-to recipes for a salty and savory treat. It’s also perfect for a movie night under the stars.


10 cups air popped popcorn (this is usually one batch)

Fresh Rosemary

¼ cup Olive oil

2 garlic cloves, peeled and minced

¼ cup Parmesan cheese

½ tsp garlic salt

Cracked black pepper


In a small saucepan, combine olive oil, garlic, and one sprig of rosemary. Allow to heat up and simmer lightly. Once it starts to simmer a little more rapidly remove from heat.

Add garlic, salt and pepper. Pour over popcorn.

Once cooled add the cheese and serve immediately.

Will keep in airtight container for 2 days.

Great topper for soups and salads in place of croutons!

My name is Lisa but some people call me Veggie Lisa. I am a mom of four kids who loves to dance, cook, exercise, shop, decorate, and enjoy all the beautiful things the state of Utah has to offer. I have had a very long journey to get to the place that I am now, strong and confident but most of all happy. At one point in my life I weighed 200 pounds. It took 11 long years and 4 babies later to finally learn how to nourish my body properly and be comfortable in my own skin. Being a life long vegetarian, I have a passion for vegetables and love teaching my kids how delicious they can be. Most people find veggies very, very, very boring. And gross. But not me! I love all things green and the more colorful my plate is, the happier I am. Vegetables don’t have to be boring! My motto is eat good, feel good, look good. When we eat good food and treat our bodies with respect, the rest falls into place.
