Food coma no more, here's a game-time snack that's both healthy and delicious with endless options for flavor alterations.
6 cups unflavored freshly popped, warm popcorn
1/3 cup Wild Mushroom-Sage Olive Oil + 2 tablespoons
1/2 cup freshly grated Asiago cheese + 2 tablespoons
Fresh cracked pepper to taste
sea salt to taste
I a bowl large enough to hold the popcorn, drizzle 1/3 cup of the mushroom sage olive oil over the sides and bottom of the bowl. Alternatively, you can use an oil mister to spray the oil on to the popcorn.
Add the still warm popcorn to the bowl and toss to coat evenly. Add 1/2 cup grated Asiago, and a few turns of fresh cracked pepper, and salt to taste. Toss to coat again. Finish by drizzling the remaining mushroom-sage olive oil over the top along with two tablespoons of Asiago, and more black pepper.
Other excellent variations include:
Persian Lime Infused Olive Oil + Baklouti Agrumato Olive Oil for chili-lime popcorn
Garlic Infused Olive Oil + Butter Infused Olive Oil for garlic-butter popcorn
Tuscan Herb Infused Olive Oil + freshly grated Pecorino Romano Cheese = Paisano Popcorn
Butter Infused Olive Oil + a sprinkle of Black Truffle Sea Salt = Truffle Popcorn
It was on my family farm in the heart of Oregon's Willamette Valley where I developed a love for cooking and the value of good food. Home grown, fresh, vibrant, good food. As an adult I spent my early years as a civil engineer, but came back to my creative side through encouragement from my husband, family and friends and opened Arome in the spring of 2017. The road goes on forever and the party never ends.
