The other weekend I had a lovely time with my friend Mr. Vodka Von Juice. In the midst of my laughing, giggling and general carrying on I realized I better eat something before I feel the need to socialise in the bathroom. That’s when it hit me – POPCORN. Yes, that was going to solve everything and make me happy as can be. That’s right. Never mind the Young Thai coconut water we had, no, who needs that? Pppfft. Who needs electrolytes when you have glorious carbs? That sounded better to me for some reason, despite the fact that it was more work. The brain works in mysterious ways.
Vegan cheesy popcorn:
3 cups of air popped corn (3 tbsp)
1 tbsp melted Earth Balance (I use non-soy)
1 tbsp nutritional yeast
Add the melted “butter” to the popped corn and immediately start spreading the nutritional yeast and start stirring to try to evenly coat everything. If you don’t it might stick to one particular kernel and be pretty over powering. I highly suggest doing this while inebriated, it’s just that much more fun. Make sure you have a deep mixing bowl because it’s pretty easy to underestimate how hard you’re stirring and then there’s popcorn on the floor and the cats are having a field day because you didn’t notice they were there. Then as you’re trying to shoo them away your popcorn gets cold and that’s irritating; everyone likes hot popcorn.
