Why is this recipe interesting?
- Prepared in a matter of minutes, vegan popcorn is a healthy snack. It is dairy-free and gluten-free which makes your munching guilt-free.
- This recipe is a great butter-free popcorn recipe as it perfectly mimics the taste of butter thanks to the oil and nutritional yeast.
- 75 g popcorn kernels
- 3 tbsp coconut oil
- Salt to taste
- 10 g garlic powder
- 15 g nutritional yeast
- In a large pot, add oil and let it heat on high. When the oil reaches its smoke point, add 2-3 kernels and see of they pop.
- If the kernels pop, add all the kernels and cover the pan with a lid. Lower the heat to medium to avoid burning.
- Make sure you don’t overcrowd the pan. After there’s an even layer of popcorn kernels, avoid adding more.
- Shake the pot with the lid on. Once the popcorn kernels start popping continue shaking in between.
- When the popcorn starts popping rapidly, tilt the lid slightly to let the steam out of the pan.
- Once the popping stops, turn off the heat and add seasoning.
- Toss gently to mix well. Serve warm in a bowl.

Notes & Tips
