With two little ones and all our numerous projects and critters, what to make for supper may often be far from my mind. Many evenings arrive with hungry tummies and not enough time to prepare the dish I had planned. These occasions frequently result in my quick supper fix – stovetop popcorn with coconut oil and smoothies (one of Cora’s favorite meals).
stovetop popcorn with coconut oil
: : 3 tbsp coconut oil
: : 1/2 cup popcorn
: : 1/2 tsp salt
I use my 3 quart pot for popping the kernels. First, melt the coconut oil on low/medium heat. Then pour the popcorn into the pot and turn the heat up to high/medium high and sprinkle in about 1/2 teaspoon of Himalayan sea salt. Next, cover the pot with the lid and let pop until the noise begins to slow. Remove the pot from the heat and toss the popcorn into a large bowl. You may wish to add other toppings at this point. My husband likes to add nutritional yeast flakes to his popcorn.
