Smoky Spiced Paprika Popcorn

Think spicy, cheesy and smoky little puffs of flavour perfect for kicking back in a camp chair and watching the big outdoor movie that is the night sky.

I’ve always loved popcorn and grew up on that classic basic butter-salt combination, and sometimes was allowed that bright yellow stuff you spill all over your seat at the movie theatre. I still remember licking fingers that were dusted in a yellow coating. These days it’s so easy to buy microwavable popcorn loaded with artificial buttery stuff, or pre-popped bags with a powder resembling cheese.
This recipe throws it back to the old school method of using a pot to pop your kernels which is pretty much a fun game in itself. Not only that, but the combination of nutritional yeast, paprika, chilli and garlic salt make it a delicious healthy alternative which can be thrown in a ziplock bag ahead of time.

Smoky Spiced Paprika Popcorn

Ingredients

  • 2/3 cup organic popcorn kernels
  • 4 tablespoons Nutritional Yeast
  • 2 tsp Smoked Paprika
  • 1 tsp Garlic Salt
  • 1 tsp Red Chili Flakes
  • Good pinch of Salt & Pepper
  • 3 tablespoons Olive Oil or Coconut Oil

At Home:
Put nutritional yeast, smoked paprika, garlic salt, chill flakes, salt & pepper into a Ziplock Bag, seal and shake - this is good to go.

At Camp:
Heat 2 tablespoons of olive oil and popcorn kernels over a mid- hot fire in a pot that is large enough for kernels to be in a single layer. Cover pot with a lid (or use aluminium foil as we did to create a “bubble” for popcorn to pop!

Once kernels begin to pop, gently shake the pot by moving it back and forth until the popping slows to about 5 seconds between pops.

Remove from fire and drizzle popcorn with remaining olive oil and toss with nutritional yeast, smoked paprika mix.

Enjoy on the beach, in a camper, or pop into a tupperware or bag for tomorrow’s hike!
