Equipment

  • 1 saucepan medium
  • 1 Air Popper optional

Ingredients
  

  • 1/3 cup nutritional yeast
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 1/2 cup popcorn organic, non GMO
  • 2 tbsp coconut oil

Instructions
 

  • Add the nutritional yeast and salt to a large storage container (with a lid).  Set aside.
  • Heat the oil in a medium saucepan over medium-high heat. Place3-4 individual kernels in the pan.  Once the kernels begin to pop, add in the rest of the kernels so that they form a single layer on the bottom of the pan.  Cover the saucepan with a lid and give it a shake so that the kernels all get coated with the oil.
  • When the popcorn kernels start popping, give the pan a good shake every 15 seconds or so to help the un-popped kernels fall to the bottom.  Once the popping slows down and there are a few seconds between pops, immediately transfer the popcorn to the prepared food storage container.  Place the lid on the container, and give it a good shake for10 seconds to coat the popcorn.
  • Alternatively, if you have an air popping machine follow the instruction on the air popper and then coat the popped popcorn with melted coconut oil and nutritional yeast and salt.
