Hurricane Popcorn with Dragon Well Furikake

DWpop3.jpgLooking for a snack that is a little salty and sweet to pair with a night on the couch? Maybe you’re taking in a good book, binging Netflix, or watching election night coverage?  This twist on a Hawaiian classic fits the bill for handfuls of habit forming goodness! Furikake, traditionally made with seaweed, fish flakes, and sesame seeds, is created with Dragon Well green tea instead for a nutty, toasty addition.

Hurricane Popcorn with Dragon Well Furikake

Ingredients:
– 1 tablespoon loose Dragon Well tea, coarsely ground or approximately 2-3 Dragon Well tea bags
– 1 teaspoon toasted sesame seeds
– 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
– 1/2 teaspoon sugar
– 1/4 organic popcorn kernels
– 1 teaspoon safflower, grapeseed, or other neutral oil

Instructions:
1. Stir the tea, sesame seeds, salt, and sugar in a bowl to make the furikake.
2. Pop the corn by your preferred method, in a hot air popper or on the stovetop.
3. Pour into a bowl. Drizzle with the oil and sprinkle on the furikake.
