Add a new level of flavor to your homemade popcorn with some nutritional yeast. This simple, vegan ingredient lends a cheesy, buttery taste to your popcorn and enhances the already delicious experience of stovetop popcorn.


  • 1/2 cup popcorn kernels
  • 3 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 12 tablespoon nutritional yeast
  • Fine salt, or popcorn salt


  1. In a large, covered saucepan, heat oil and popcorn kernels over high heat. Allow the kernels to begin popping. Holding the lid on with one hand, shake the pot frequently to prevent the kernels from burning.
  2. Once the popping slows (to about 1 pop per second), remove from heat and place into a large bowl. Season to taste with nutritional yeast and salt.
