Festive Roasted Beet & Red Onion Popcorn

If you are like me, I love to see the extravagant holiday treats and delicacies that people create. I am constantly glued to my screen wondering what Martha Stewart if crafting (have you tried her Acorn Squash with Mixed-Grain Stuffing?). But I must admit, I don’t have the time to spend hours in the kitchen to make holiday treats – I would rather be in the rumpus room spending the holidays with friends.

Now get this, what if I told you that you only need three ingredients and will take you under 10-minutes to make a festive holiday treat? It even has protein in it, so is what I consider ‘healthy’ for a holiday treat. This also makes the perfect easy vegan snack.
