Jazz up your bowl of popcorn with cheesy flavor


Do you have a popcorn night? Or maybe you enjoy a bowl of popcorn whenever the urge hits.

Either way, why not take an extra moment to jazz up your treat?

This recipe can add that little extra oomph to a regular bowl of popcorn and serve as a real treat for the children. But be warned: If you do this, you may have to do it over and over again … it’s that good.


Ingredients …

2 tablespoons garlic flavored or vegetable oil

1/2 cup popcorn kernels

1 tablespoon melted butter, optional

2 tablespoons nutritional yeast (found at health food stores, adds a cheese-like flavor without the calories or fat)

1 teaspoon curry powder, optional


Directions …

In a large, heavy-bottomed pot (with a lid), place oil and about 3 popcorn kernels.

Heat over medium-high heat until a kernel pops. Add remaining popcorn; cover.

Once corn begins to pop, shake pot constantly over heat.

When popping slows, remove pot from heat and transfer popcorn to a serving bowl.

Pour butter over popcorn, if desired, and toss.

Sprinkle yeast and curry powder, if desired, over popcorn and toss to distribute evenly.

Serve immediately or store in an air-tight container.
