Healthier Hurricane Popcorn
A healthier take on a popular Hawaiian snack: popcorn popped in coconut oil and topped with furikake and arare. A delicious movie treat!
Servings: 4 people
- 4 tablespoons coconut oil liquid state, divided
- 6 tablespoons popcorn kernels
- 1 teaspoon salt or to taste
- 1 tablespoon furikake
- ½ cup arare
Heat 3 tablespoons of coconut oil in a large saucepan over medium-high heat. Add a couple of unpopped popcorn kernels to the pan. Once they pop, add the rest of the kernels.
Cover pan with a lid and shake gently over heat to ensure as many kernels as possible get popped. Once you no longer hear popping, remove pan from heat.
Add 1 more tablespoon of coconut oil and furikake to the popped corn. Toss to coat.
Finally, stir in the arare.
- You can find furikake at most Asian markets or online here. You can also find arare (Japanese rice crackers) at most Asian markets or online here. (affiliate links)
- If you don't feel like popping fresh kernels of popcorn on the stove, you can pop a bag of plain microwave popcorn in and just toss it with coconut oil, furikake and arare when it's done.
