Stovetop Popcorn

Ingredients

For 1 Batch(es)

Recipe

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/2 cups dried popping corn
  • 1 tablespoons unsalted butter (or olive oil)
  • 1 tablespoons nutritional yeast, or to taste
  • salt, to taste

Stovetop Popcorn Directions

  1. Heat the oil in a lidded stainless steel skillet or frying pan over medium-high heat for a few minutes until it runs easily and shimmers.
  2. Drop a few kernels of dried corn in the pan and put on the lid. When the kernels pop, remove them, pour the remaining corn into the pan and replace the lid.
  3. Shake the pan back and forth on the burner so the kernels are evenly coated in oil and distribute properly throughout popping. Popping should take about 5 to 10 minutes.
  4. Transfer the popcorn to a large bowl.
  5. Drop a pat of butter or a slosh of olive oil into the still-hot pan and swirl until heated.
  6. Pour the popcorn back into the pan and swirl it around, or mix with tongs, to coat.
  7. Return the popcorn to the bowl and add nutritional yeast and salt, to taste.
