This low-fat and low-carbohydrate treat is excellent for your next movie night. The spices add an interesting flavor to the snack. If one serving doesn't fill you up, have two — they'll count as only 1 carbohydrate exchange.

Prep time: 15 minutes

• 7½ cups air-popped popcorn
• butter-flavored cooking spray
• 1½ tsp. cumin
• 1½ tsp. garlic powder
• 1½ tsp. onion powder
• 1½ tsp. Worcestershire sauce
• cayenne pepper (optional)

• oven
• large baking pan
• measuring cups
• measuring spoons

1. Preheat oven to 300° Fahrenheit (148° Celsius).
2. Put popcorn in a large mixing bowl.
3. Lightly coat popcorn with cooking spray. Toss and coat again.
4. Combine cumin, garlic powder, onion powder, and cayenne pepper (optional).
5. Sprinkle spices over popcorn and toss to coat evenly.
6. Drizzle Worcestershire sauce over popcorn and toss again.
7. Spread popcorn evenly in large baking pan.
8. Bake for 10 minutes, tossing once.

Wonder if you could put this part in a shaker-top container (as you would for cinnamon-sugar or other seasoning)....(although I don't know how the Worcestershire sauce could be added in, or if it would be deleted),
• 1½ tsp. cumin
• 1½ tsp. garlic powder
• 1½ tsp. onion powder
• 1½ tsp. Worcestershire sauce
• cayenne pepper (optional)

And could other toppings be prepared in a similar fashion?

I do a similar thing with my popcorn. I am gluten free, so I use nutritional yeast. It comes in a can and has the consistency of potato flakes. It is cheesy and nutty. My friend claims it reminds her of peanut butter flavor. I buy it at Sprouts or Whole Foods. Costs about 10.99 for a large can that goes a long way. One Tablespoon is about 30 calories and is major high in minerals and vitamins.

Spread the prepared popcorn out on the cookie sheet and spray with Pam (butter flavor). Sprinkle a Tablespoon of nutritional yeast over and kind of toss it around. If you want a more cheesy flavor, repeat with the spray and more nutritional yeast.

Bake for just a few minutes to let the flavor sink in. It is soooo good hot from the oven.

sounds good but I'd want to eat all 7 servings of popcorn. I usually eat 5-6 cups at a time anyway.

I recently discovered that you can pop popcorn in a brown paper sack in the microwave if you don't have an air popper. No oils, works great! Will definitely try this recipe.
