Ingredients

  • 2-4 tbsp coconut oil, see notes for an oil-free alternative
  • 1/2 cup popcorn kernels (105 g)
  • 1/4 cup nutritional yeast (4 tbsp)
  • 2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1-2 tsp salt

Instructions

  1. Add oil to a large pot over medium-high heat. We used 2 tbsp, but if you add more, your popcorn will taste even better and the rest of the ingredients will stick easier to the popcorn as well.
  2. When the oil is hot, add 3-4 individual kernels to the pot and cover. Once they pop, uncover the pan, add the rest of the kernels and cover again. Give the pot a shake once in a while to prevent burning.
  3. When the popping dies down, remove from heat, add the rest of the ingredients and give the pot a good shake to combine.
  4. Serve immediately or keep leftovers in a sealed container at room temperature for 5-7 days.

Notes

  • I tried to make popcorn with no oil a few years ago and it worked. I just cooked the popcorn kernels over medium-high heat with no oil in a large pot, giving the pot a shake once in a while to prevent burning. I only added salt, but if you’re going to add the nutritional yeast and garlic powder as well, I think you should add a tiny amount of water before adding the nutritional yeast and garlic powder, that way they’ll stick to the popcorn easier.
  • Any type of oil will do.
  • Nutritional yeast and garlic powder are optional ingredients.
  • Nutritional info has been calculated by using 2 tablespoons of coconut oil and 1 teaspoon of salt.
