The days of salty, buttery popcorn are over. Once you try this Popcorn Seasoned with Nutritional Yeast you may not ever want butter on your popcorn again.
I was introduced to this popcorn about 7 years ago. My initial reaction was, “You are going to put What on the popcorn?” I was told, “Just try it!” To my surprise I loved it. After that night I decided to drop that greasy, salty popcorn and converted to this nutritionally packed goodness.
In the recipe below I added a tasty ingredient. Kelp. Yes, that is seaweed. I added kelp powder to give the popcorn a little extra nutrients. If you did not know, Kelp is really good for you. It is rich in vitamins (A, B, C, D, E and K) and minerals (calcium, chlorine, potassium and magnesium). It is a source of Omega-3 fatty acids. Kelp helps to lower cholesterol and blood sugar as well as has anti-cancer benefits.
As for the nutritional yeast, it too, is great for you. It is a complete protein, a great source of B-12 and folic acid, high in fiber, best of all its gluten-free. It has a cheesy taste and that is why I love it on my popcorn.
Melt coconut oil in stove top popcorn popper then add popcorn. Turn the handle until all kernels are popped. Transfer to a big bowl and season with nutritional yeast, kelp and salt.
