Why be usual on Valentine’s Day? The Dirty Hippie and I have a long-standing custom of staying in on this holiday. What’s better in February than a quiet night at home on the sofa with a movie and some popcorn? So this year, if you dare, offer your love a jar of the Dirty Hippie’s Vegan Popcorn Seasoning. You can make it mild or spice it up. And it’s good on other foods too, like baked potatoes, broccoli, tofu sticks – really anywhere you want some cheesy deliciousness.
We wish you a Happy Valentine’s Day, in whatever flavor you celebrate love!
Dirty Hippie’s Popcorn Seasoning
2 cups nutritional yeast
1/8 cup smoked paprika
2 Tbs. Old Bay
2 Tbs. garlic powder
1 Tbs. onion powder
1/2 tsp. cayenne powder (optional, or add more if you like)
Mix all ingredients in a bowl and stir together until well blended. Store in an airtight container, like a jar with a lid.
To make popcorn, pop about 1/2 cup of kernels in a heavy-bottom pan on the stove or use an air popper (follow manufacturer directions). Toss hot popcorn with some melted coconut oil or Earth Balance (optional, we use about 2 Tablespoons) and 1/3 cup of Dirty Hippie Popcorn Seasoning. Eat immediately!
This recipe is vegan and gluten-free. It makes enough to use on several (about six) batches of popcorn!
