It’s hard to think about movie night without picturing the popcorn.
Luscious, butter coated morsels with just a touch of cheese and a pillowy crunch are the perfect pairing for a great story when you are cuddling up with a big woolly blanket on the couch. What a good thing that it’s so quick and easy to make – you’ll be watching the movie in no time!
15 grams of popcorn kernels are all you need for a satisfying snack. Throw them in a hot air popper or use a lidded saucepan on the stove to get the best light, fluffy nibble-inviting results. Once it’s ready, it is time to turn your attention to the toppings. My two favourites are simple and addictive: butter and nutritional yeast.
Melt 2 teaspoons of butter in a small saucepan.
Drizzle the butter over the popcorn. Follow that with a sprinkling of 1 gram (about 1/4 teaspoon) of nutritional yeast.
Never tried nutritional yeast before? I think of it as a cross between a cheezie and a snap pea crisp – light, salty and slightly cheesy. YUM!
Try it once and you’ll be licking out the bowl! Enjoy the movie!
