Rosemary Cheese Popcorn

 

I love popcorn. I would eat it as a meal in college, too often. I didn’t like the microwaved stuff and still to this day always use a stove top popper! You can now find them anywhere and you will never regretting converting over to the real deal.

This recipe is PERFECT to cozy up with on the couch and watch a movie on a cold day. Otherwise, throw it out in the lineup at your next party. Either way, whoever gets a handful of this stuff will be hooked and one handful is never enough!

Place the stove top popper on your stove and add in 1 cup of uncooked kernels and 2 tbs of Coconut Oil. Turn the heat to medium or medium-high, depending on how hot your stove top runs.

While that is warming up, use a coffee grinder or mortal and passel to blend up the seasoning. Add in the nutritional yeast, salt, garlic powder, onion powder, rosemary, and basil. Pulse or grind until everything is combined and minced up, the finer the better.

In a large bowl, add the seasoning and stir in 1 tbs of melted coconut oil.

By now, the popping as started and be sure to keep stirring the popcorn until the popping has completely stopped, this will prevent it from burning.

Once done, pour the popcorn into the bowl with the seasoned coconut oil and stir so everything is evenly coated. The finer the seasoning, the better because it will stick to the popcorn better.

Finally, if you wish, lightly drizzle on some balsamic glaze for a great richness and added sweetness. Enjoy!
