Nutritional PopcornPosted: May 8, 2013
I was inspired by my BFF Katie to blog about this amazing popcorn. It’s made with nutritional yeast which is a nutty, cheesy flavoured inactive yeast that looks like yellow flakes. It has vitamin B12 so is a great option for vegans and vegetarians to get their B vitamins. You can find it at most health food grocery stores. I sprinkle it on salads, but it is also delicious on popcorn!
1/4-1/3 cup popcorn kernels (enough to fill the bottom of a medium sized pan in one layer)
1 tbsp canola oil
3 tbsp melted coconut oil
4 tbsp nutritional yeast (or more if you’re a fan)
sprinkling of salt (and pepper if you like a bit of spice)
1. Pop popcorn with desired method. I use the pot method: Fill a medium pot with oil and popcorn kernels. Cook covered over medium heat moving pot around until the kernels start to pop and keep over heat until almost all kernels are popped. Once the popping stops, remove from heat, keep covered and set aside to complete popping.
2. Once popcorn is popped drizzle with coconut oil, and sprinkle with nutritional yeast, salt and pepper (optional), mix popcorn around a bit. Kick back, relax and enjoy a movie. You might want to make sure you have a napkin lying around because this popcorn tends to leave your hands a bit messy.
