For The Vegan Popcorn Base
- ½ cup Popcorn kernels
- 3 tbsp oil of your choice (coconut, canola, sunflower…)
- In a large pot with a lid, add in an oil of your choice and let it get hot. You can test to see if it is hot enough by putting a few kernels into the hot oil and covering the pot to see if they pop. When they pop, you will know that the oil is hot enough.
- Slowly pour in your popcorn kernels to the oil and recover with the lid. Carefully shake the pot to fully coat all of the kernels in oil and to stop any possible burning. The popcorn should quickly begin popping.
- Shake every 10-15 seconds until the popping slows down.
- Remove from heat and set aside. The popcorn is ready to have flavor added to it.
For Cheesy Garlic Vegan Popcorn
With the pot of your prepped homemade popcorn handy, add in a generous amount of nutritional yeast and garlic salt to the popcorn. With the lid on, give the popcorn a good shake and enjoy warm or cooled to room temperature from a large bowl.
For Trail Mix Vegan Popcorn
Let your popcorn fully cool down to room-temperature before adding in anything for this recipe. Add in equal parts raisins (I opt for dried cranberries because I don’t like raisins), almonds, peanuts, and a vegan m&m’s alternative (Little Secrets Candy has options) to a hearty helping of your popcorn. Enjoy at home or on the hiking trail!
For Campfire S’mores Vegan Popcorn
Vegan marshmallows (Trader Joe’s), vegan graham crackers (Nabisco originalGrahams), and vegan chocolate (most dark chocolates) are the only ingredients you need to add to your hot, freshly made popcorn in order to end up with delicious, s’mores-inspired popcorn. Crumble your graham crackles, chop your chocolate bar, throw in a lot of marshmallows, and you’ll be good to go! To be best enjoyed in front of a campfire or a scary movie.
