Here’s a fun garnish for fall: for soups, vegetables, grains, proteins, even plain yogurt.

Combine seasoned popcorn (recipe below) with dried cranberries and pepitas, and top with fried sage leaves (here’s the recipe—it’s worth the effort).

You can also use the mixture as a trail mix-type snack, perhaps with the addition of chocolate chips?

And, if you don’t want a garnish, just enjoy the seasoned popcorn as a snack.
