Ingredients

  • 1/2 tbsp. extra virgin olive oil and 1/2 tbsp. organic butter or coconut oil optional
  • 1/4 cup organic popcorn
  • 1 tbsp. organic butter or coconut oil
  • 2 tbsp. nutritional yeast
  • 1 tbsp. dried dill
  • dash of sea salt

Instructions

  • If you have a popcorn maker then woohoo, life just got easier. If you are like me and have to cook your popcorn on the stove top here is a fail-proof method:
  • Heat the olive oil and butter or coconut oil together in a large flat bottom saucepan over medium-high heat. Add 3 popcorn kernels and cover with a lid. Wait until the three kernels have popped - your pan is now hot enough! Remove the three kernels and pour in the rest of the kernels, ensuring they are in a single layer. Remove the pan from the heat for about 30 seconds. This ensures that the kernels are all at a near-popping temperature so they will pop evenly. Now put the pan back on the heat and cover with a lid, once the kernels start popping start to shake the pan gently. Once the popping slows down to once every few seconds, remove the popcorn from the heat and pour into a large bowl.
  • While the popcorn is cooking heat the butter or coconut oil in a small saucepan to melt it.
  • Once the popcorn is finished drizzle half of the butter or coconut oil onto the popcorn, followed by half of the nutritional yeast and dill. Give the popcorn a good mix and shake, then pour on the remaining ingredients. Mix until the popcorn is well and evenly coated. Season with salt. YUM!

Notes

Make it vegan: Use coconut oil in place of butter
Cut the calories: Use an air popcorn maker, or pop in a brown paper bag in the microwave
Use fresh dill: Substitute with 1/4 cup chopped fresh dill
