Chili Lime Popcorn - Vegan and Glutenfree!



Chili Lime Popcorn

Last night, my fiance made me  chili lime popcorn and I had to ask "Where has this stuff been all of my life??!!" It has everything! Tons of flavor, nutrition, vitamin B-12, and it's even super immune-boosting! The only thing I'll warn you about is that it's very "wet." Personally, I like this as it means all of the seasonings stick perfectly without having to use tons of oil. But if you do want yours a bit more dry, simply omit the tamari and add a little sea salt instead. Enjoy!! And for more unusual and delish popcorn recipes, be sure to check out my books. I'm a popcorn addict!

 
½ cup popcorn
1 tablespoon oil (sunflower, coconut, or olive)
1 tablespoon nutritional yeast
1 teaspoon minced lime zest
½ teaspoon ground cayenne powder
3 large cloves garlic, minced or pressed
3 tablespoons fresh lime juice
1 tablespoon tamari (optional)


1.       In a large pot with a tight fitting lid, heat to medium-high and add the oil and popcorn. To pop, shake very often and remove from heat immediately once the popping slows down to 1-2 seconds between pops.

2.       Remove the popcorn to a very large bowl. Sprinkle with the yeast, lime zest, cayenne, and garlic.

3.       You’ll add the liquids last—they provide a nice wet base so that all of the seasonings stick without having to use more oil. However, if you don’t want your popcorn to be overly wet, you can substitute a little sea salt for the tamari.

4.       Stir very well and serve. Enjoy your movie! ; )
