I’m sharing a simple recipe with you today – perfect stove top popcorn. Who doesn’t love salty buttery popcorn! It’s a H favourite so I make it often, minus the butter. I use coconut oil instead and it works a treat.
I of course have nothing against butter, so feel free to melt a little and drizzle it over the top if you wish.
My stove top popcorn is a healthy snack option – it’s also quick and super cheap!
I have kept my stove top popcorn natural but there are lots of flavour options if you are feeling creative. Here are just a couple you could try:
parmesan and rosemary popcorn – toss both with the hot popcorn
movie style butter popcorn – melt butter and pour over the top
Lemon and salt popcorn – finely grate and rub into the salt
Sweet cinnamon popcorn – combine cinnamon with fine sugar
cheesy vegan popcorn – combine nutritional yeast with salt
chilli popcorn – toss in chilli salt
Perfect stove top popcorn
- 2 tablespoons coconut oil
- 1 cup popcorn kernels
- fine salt
Add coconut oil to a heavy bottomed saucepan along with 3 kernels over medium high heat. Once they pop remove them.
Take saucepan off the heat and add the cup of popcorn kernels. Swish the popcorn around in the pan or 30 seconds off the heat to make sure they are covered in the oil. Return to the heat and partially cover with a lid.
Once the popping slows down take off the heat. Add to a large bowl and season well with salt. Serve.
