Spicy Turmeric Popcorn
Spice up your popcorn! Simple, tasty and a feast for the eyes! Flavored popcorn are the best: truffle salt, cinnamon, turmeric, chili pepper, fennel – the list goes on and on. Today, we’re making spicy turmeric popcorn. A true favorite!
3 Tbsp coconut oil
1/2 cup organic popcorn kernels (enough to cover the bottom of the saucepan)
1/2 tsp turmeric
Add coconut oil, popcorn kernels and turmeric to a saucepan. Cover the pot (don’t forget!) and wait for the kernels to pop. For drier and crispier popcorn, keep the cover slightly ajar. It allows the steam to escape, which results in crispier popcorn. Shake the saucepan to make sure all kernels are covered in coconut oil and turmeric, and remove from the heat when you can count two seconds between pops. Remove lid and empty into a large serving bowl.
Add salt! Be sure to toss well to season the popcorn evenly. DIG IN! To the left in the picture above, you see some buckwheat and coconut balls with chocolate coating. The perfect sweet treat for a Friday night!
Tips for making perfect popcorn
– Add popcorn kernels in an even layer, enough to cover the bottom of the saucepan – not more!
– Allow the steam to escape – it results in crispier popcorn. Keep the cover slightly ajar, and/or remove the lid as soon as possible.
