As we all gathered around last night to watch the new episode of Doctor Who, I was pretty sure we needed popcorn. Sure, popcorn with a little salt is good, but I wanted to do something a little more YUMMY for the special event. So, after a little surfing around and gathering some ideas, I ended up with the following. The popcorn kernel measurement might be a little off, as I just threw it in the pan from the bag, but I think it’s close.
1/3 c. nutritional yeast
1/2 t. chili powder
2 t. turmeric
1 c. popcorn kernels
Olive oil in sprayer (or Pam)
Mix yeast, chili powder, and turmeric in a small bowl. Heat veg. oil over medium high heat. After it’s good and hot, add popcorn and swirl to coat. Continue cooking, gently shaking pan over heat until corn begins to pop. When it slows to less than 1 pop per 3 seconds, remove from heat and dump into a large bowl. Spray surface with oil/Pam, shake nut. yeast mix from spoon over surface, add some sea salt. Gently toss to bring new corn to top. Continue process until corn is coated enough. You may well have leftover mix, put that in a bag and save for next time.
Pop in a movie or sit down for your favorite show and enjoy! You’ll need a napkin.
