The Best Butter Free Popcorn

The Best Butter Free Popcorn Prep time: 2 mins Cook time: 8 mins Serves: 2


  • 3-4 TBSP - Avocado oil, or enough to coat the bottom of the pan (any high heat oil will do -- coconut oil, grapeseed oil, etc)
  • 1/2 cup - organic popcorn kernels
  • 1/4 cup - nutritional yeast, or more*/less to taste
  • 1-2 TSP - salt, to taste
  • Black pepper to taste


  1. 1 Add oil to a large metal stockpot over medium-high heat.
  2. 2 Place 3-4 individual kernels in the pan and cover. Once they pop, uncover the pan and add in the rest of the kernels so that they form a single layer on the bottom of the pan. Cover, and give the pot a shake so that they all get coated with the oil.
  3. 3 Once the popcorn kernels start popping furiously, give the pot a good shake every 15 seconds or so to help the un-popped kernels fall to the bottom, which prevents burning.
  4. 4 When the popping dies down, immediately pour the popcorn it into a large mixing bowl (one that has a lid, like tupperware), and sprinkle with nutritional yeast, salt and pepper.
  5. 5 Cover, and give it a good shake to combine.
