Nutritional yeast can simply be sprinkled on popcorn, but for a more indulgent, cheesy, nutty treat, Alexander suggests flavoring popcorn this way:
- ½ cup organic corn kernels, popped
- ¼ cup nutritional yeast
- 2 Tbs. grass-fed butter
- For a vegan version, use a plant oil such as coconut.
- For an extra kick, season with chipotle powder or cayenne pepper.
- Melt butter, stir in nutritional yeast, and pour over top of popcorn.
