That’s a bold statement, I know, but seriously, this popcorn recipe is the jam. It’s perfect for movie night, just having out, or packing a snack for work. I made this popcorn for some friends recently and before I knew it, it was all GONE. It’s an easy recipe and it’s vegan too!
- Any brand of Popcorn Kernels (The kind you pop yourself)
- Olive Oil
- Earth Balance
- Bragg’s Liquid Aminos* (You can use soy sauce if you can’t find this)
- Bragg’s Nutritional Yeast*
*For those who aren’t sure, Liquid Aminos is a vegetable protein seasoning made with 16 amino acids and from NON-GMO soybeans. It’s an excellent more natural alternative to soy sauce. In my opinion, soy sauce has way too much sodium. Liquid Aminos has much less and tastes almost exactly the same. You can find it at Whole Foods and GNC.
*We’ve talked a little about Nutritional Yeast before but if you missed it, here’s the scoop. It’s a deactivated yeast that comes in flake form, it’s vegan, it’s filled with B vitamins, and it gives everything a cheesy taste. That makes it perfect for popcorn. You can also find this at most natural food stores.
To make a large bowl of popped corn, use a half cup of kernels. You can use an air-popper but if you don’t have one that’s okay! I use a medium size saucepan with a tight fitting lid. Put 2 Tbsp olive oil in the pot and the half cup of kernels. Turn the heat on high and put on the lid. Once it begins to pop, keep an ear out. Just like microwave popcorn, you’ll want to remove the pot from the heat when the pops are 3-4 seconds apart.
To make the popcorn dressing melt 3/4 cup butter in the microwave in a safe dish. Once melted, add 3 Tbsp liquid aminos. Mix together and drizzle over the popcorn. I like to shake the bowl so the popcorn is coated completely. Then sprinkle on some nutritional yeast and you’re all set!! Trust me. Best. Snack. Ever.
