Cheesy Garlic Popcorn

Here's a healthy snack that will cure your craving for a crunchy snack, boost your immunity, and is super easy to make. It's also very inexpensive if you own an air popcorn popper and buy the popcorn in bulk.

1/4 cup popcorn kernels, popped (you could use plain microwave popcorn or local corn grown and dried for popping)

4-6 cloves garlic, pressed
1/4 cup olive oil
1/2 grated hard cheese such as Asiago, Parmesan, Romano

In a small bowl combine olive oil and garlic. Heat for approximately 30 seconds in the microwave or until oil is bubbling. Spoon hot olive oil over popcorn, stirring. Salt to taste, add cheese and stir. That's it! Enjoy.
