Cajun Popcorn and Cajun Spice

I was looking for a snack for my movie the other night. I don’t keep much snack food in the house when Jake is not around so all I really had was popcorn. I looked in my “La Dolce Vegan!” cookbook and found a recipe for Cajun Popcorn that uses a homemade Cajun Spice. I have included both recipes here for those of you who really love a popcorn snack.

Cajun Spice
2 tablespoons paprika
1 tablespoon dried thyme
1 tablespoon dried oregano
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper

1. In a small jar, combine all ingredients.
2. Cap and shake well before using.

    • It was pretty delish. Next time I’m going to make my Cajun Spice with a bit more salt and cayenne though. Not quite enough salty bite for me this time.

    • That is SO true! And popcorn is one of those snack foods that is just BEGGING to be extraordinary-ized but no one ever thinks to take a chance on it. One of my other favorites is tossing dill and a bit of course-grain mustard and olive oil mixture into it. That’s not for the faint of heart though. I should post my recipe for that sometime soon as well.
