This way of making popcorn will change your life. Well, not really, but it will change the way you make popcorn! No need to buy those overpriced (and not to mention wasteful) prepackaged microwave popcorn bags. You can do it yourself with much more healthy and enjoyable results. Top off your popcorn with some nutritional yeast for an added protein boost and cheese-like flavor.


  1. 1Place 1/4 cup dry corn kernels in a paper bag. Add olive oil or grapeseed oil. Season with salt.
  2. 2Fold the bag over a few times and place in the microwave. Microwave on high for 2-4 minutes. Once there are about two seconds between pops, hit the stop button so it doesn’t burn.
  3. 3Sprinkle with nutritional yeast and more salt (if needed) on top. Toss or stir to evenly coat.
