Nutritional Yeast Popcorn

The first time I was offered nutritional yeast on popcorn I looked at my friend like he was crazy. What on earth was that weird yellow stuff and why are you putting it on my food?! Upon first taste I swallowed my words and an enormous bucket of popcorn. Ever since I have been obsessed with all things nutritional yeast (a peek through my blog will testify to this) and have been working on perfecting my popcorn recipe. I personally prefer the stove top method to the air popped variety as I prefer a bit of oil to make it richer (read: fatty goodness).



Nutritional Yeast Popcorn

2 tbsp of grapeseed oil
1/2 cup of yellow or white popcorn
a spritz of olive oil spray
1/2 cup of nutritional yeast
1 tsp of sea salt
dash of cayenne (optional) 

Place oil and kernels in a heavy pot with a tight-fighting glass lid on medium-high heat. Using oven mitts, shake pot to coat the kernels with oil. Continue shaking every 20-30 seconds, never letting it rest on the heat for more than 30 seconds.  After all kernels are popped transfer to an extra large bowl. Lightly spritz with olive oil spray and start shaking in the salt and nutritional yeast. Repeat this process as you continue shaking the bowl until all contents are evenly coated. Top off with a dash of cayenne (if using) and give it a final shake. Throw on a movie and enjoy!

Prep time: 10 minutes

That's the type of popcorn I'd love to try.

I'm embarrassed to say that I never knew how to make the nutritional yeast stick!

Although Little Lad's popcorn can't be duplicated, throw some dried dill into your mix and it will be somewhat close :-)

Yum!

I once made popcorn then realized I didn't have any nutritional yeast. I just couldn't eat it without it, just not the same.

that sounds so good. I use to love the cheesy popcorn before now I can try this. I am a big popcorn addict

I've never thought nutritional yeast sounded very appealing. However since everyone seems to think it's great, maybe I need to give it a try.

A contribution for your nutritional yeast obsession

Yeast Pancakes
Combine 1/2 cup nutritional yeast, 3/4 cup organic whole wheat flour, and 3/4 cup water in a medium-size bowl, to form a loose flaky mixture.
Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Pour the batter into the skillet and cook on each side for approximately 3 minutes, until the pancakes are golden brown and crispy.

This brings back fond memories of my childhood as my mom used to add nutritional yeast to the stovetop popcorn...gonna have to pick some up next time!

I like to add a little onion powder, too. It tastes like the nacho cheese flavor of Doritos.

@flavorvegan I've found my twin! I, too, can't eat popcorn without nutritional yeast and carry a bag in my car at all times in case I go to a movie on a whim. I was turned on to this combo at the Red Vic movie theater on Haight Street in San Francisco in the 90's...I've been high on it ever since.

Oh my. This was delish. My boys thought they were eating cheesy popcorn. Maybe it was because I called it that, rather than Nutritional Yeast Popcorn...
The Hubby is in the know, and is a convert now, however the 8 y.o. is in the dark, until we make it together for our next movie night. :)

Thank you for sharing something yummy and healthy! This is going to be a part of our Family Movie Nights for many years I'm sure!

I wonder what brand you prefer...?
I can't seem to find a brand that tastes the way I remember. Do you have a recommendation?

I first tried nutritional yeast on popcorn at the Red Vic movie theater on Haight Street in San Francisco too.

I'm glad I'm not the only one who carries a bag of yeast in my purse..

Oh wow! That's amazing!
I was skeptical of nutritional yeast as a cheesy flavor, but I'm sold!

Half a cup of nutritional yeast is wayyyy more than the daily recommended amount.

More than 3 tbsp of NY powder a day (flakes, even less) can cause significantly elevated uric acid levels in the body which puts strain on the kidneys, can cause kidney stones to form, and can can cause gout.

@anonymous I don't think that they were recommending that you eat this recipe every day. Indulging every once in awhile isn't going to kill your kidneys.
