It was movie night at the good ol’ BEST house, so, what better snack than POPCORN!!
Annnd, not just any popcorn will do, we wanted fancy popcorn treats. Ladies and gentlemen, introducing: Sweet Curry Ginger Popcorn and Vegan Cheesy Popcorn!
Stovetop popcorn is fun. Plus, we don’t own a microwave so it is the only option. Many people out there use a pot to make popcorn. SHAME ON YOU. This is an easy way to burn it. Use a flat bottom sauce pan.The surface-area-to-kernel is important. Coat the bottom of the pan in a thin layer of oil. Add a few kernels, 5 or 6 or so, and keep the pan covered. Heat pan until kernels start popping. Remove from heat and wait for about 30 seconds. Add in a half cup or so of popcorn kernels and heat it up again. Chaos will ensue. When popping significantly slows down, remove pan from heat and pour popcorn into a bowl.
Now for the tasty part: melt down some Earth Balance (vegan butter), drizzle over popped corn. Add seasonings.
