The Avengers

Love this movie! And if you also love this movie, you know the epic, hilarious ending involving the team silently eating at a shawarma restaurant.

What better way to set this movie apart from the other superhero movie requests than to come up with a seasoning combo inspired by the tasty treat?

I recommend the use of a grinder, if you have one. I have one of those Bella Rocket Blenders and it has the grinder on it. You don't HAVE to, it's mainly because dill and parsley tend to be larger leaved and so if you want more spread from them you have to grind them down in some way. Also, instead of tahini I used sesame seeds, so those would also need to be ground. What I did was add all the seasonings together in the cup and then ground them all together. Worked great.

Post World Saving Battle Shawarma Popcorn 
3 T olive oil
1/2 c popcorn kernels

1/2 tsp garlic
1/16 tsp cardamom
1/16 tsp allspice
1/4 tsp lemon pepper
1/16 tsp dill
1/2 tsp parsley
1/4 tsp sesame seeds 


Add the oil and popcorn kernels to a heavy 3- to 4-quart saucepan with a lid. Shake the pan to coat the kernels with oil. The kernels should cover the bottom of the pan in a single layer.

Cover the pan and place it over medium high heat. When the corn begins to pop, lift it slightly from the heat and shake the pan every so often (does not have to be continuous), holding the lid in place, until the popping begins to slow, about 3 to 4 minutes. Pour into bowl or bag big enough to toss further ingredients.
