Cheesy Popcorn

Difficulty: Easy

Serves 4

Popcorn is one of my favourite foods and while I usually enjoy the simpler things when it comes to popcorn, sometimes I want to kick it up a notch and get a little crazy on the kernels. This time around I opted for a delightful savoury concoction made from cashews and nutritional yeast, sprinkled over those little white clouds of heaven, you’ve got yourself a mad snack.


  • 3/4 cup popcorn kernels
  • Spray oil

Cheesy Sprinkle

  • 1/2 cup cashews
  • 1/4 cup nutritional yeast
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder


  1. Make the cheese sprinkle by combining all ingredients in a blender or food processor until a fine powder is formed. Set aside.
  2. Using an air popper, pop your kernels (you can also pop in a pan if you like).
  3. While still hot, spray generously with olive oil spray and gradually add the cheesy sprinkle while shaking gently until the kernels are nicely covered.
  4. Serve immediately.
