I am not well-versed in cooking, but I'm learning!
Last year at Basics there was a table where someone was giving out samples of popcorn tossed in flax oil instead of butter. I was amazed at how good it tasted!
About 6 months ago, I began seeing my naturopathic doctor again regularly for acupuncture and nutritional guidance to re-build my immune system. She recommended I incorporate nutritional yeast into my diet and suggested I try it on popcorn. "Yeast" did not sound very yummy to me, but to my surprise, I loved its nutty, cheesy flavor!
I made some of the "new" popcorn for my kids, and they too loved the taste (of course I didn't mention how healthy it was.)
I buy the popcorn and the nutritional yeast (also known as brewer's yeast) in bulk from Basics which makes this one of the most cost-effective, nutritious snacks ever ;-)
The recipe is simple, as there are only 4 ingredients:
- Barlean's Flax Oil (available in a refrigerated case at Basics)
- Nutritional Yeast
- Sea Salt
Fast and easy--ENJOY!
