3-Ingredient Parmesan Popcorn

3-Ingredient Parmesan Popcorn


3 tablespoons olive oil
½ cup popcorn
½ cup finely grated Parmesan cheese (1 ounce)
2 tablespoons finely chopped parsley
¼ teaspoon salt


Heat the oil in a large heavy-bottomed pot over medium high heat. Add three kernels to the pot as “test” kernels. When one or more of the kernels pop, add the remaining popcorn kernels and cover. Give the pot a shake over the heat source and continue shaking frequently until most of the sound of the popping has mostly stopped, with just a few stray pops here and there. Remove from the heat. Immediately add the parmesan cheese, parsley and salt and toss briefly to combine, then transfer the popcorn to a large serving bowl and serve.
