Sunshine Cheesy Popcorn

Ready in 10 minutes | Serves 2-4

Popcorn is a favourite in our house, and it’s such a cost effective snack that is really very versatile! Here, I’ve partnered the golden kernel with nutritional yeast which adds B vitamins as well as a “cheesy” flavour that everyone will love.

Heat the coconut oil in a large pot on a high heat, add the kernels and cover. Gently shake the pot to keep the kernels circulating.

Keep cooking and gently shaking the pot, lifting the lid every so often, until you hear the popping start.

Keep repeating this process until you don’t hear anymore popping. It should be around 2 minutes.

Lastly, combine the extra 2 tsp melted coconut oil, salt, nutritional yeast and turmeric in a bowl until you get a glossy golden paste.

Pour it over the cooked popcorn and stir through until it’s all well coated.
