kelpy corn!

My mom gave me some kelp powder and I wasn’t sure what to do with it. Popcorn is my favorite snack, and when I did some googling I found I wasn’t the only one who thought about popcorn seasoned with kelp powder.

The blogs I looked at recommended mixing it with nutritional yeast. I used a recipe that suggested 2 Tbsp nutritional yeast and 1 tsp kelp powder.

Usually I use an air popper, but this was on Annunciation so I decided to have as much oil as possible. I did 1/2 C popcorn kernels in 2 Tbsp coconut oil.

I love watching the pan fill up…

Until the top almost pops off. This old pan is my favorite for popping corn.

Now, all the recipes I saw just said to add the topping while the popcorn was hot, but I tried it and it didn’t stick. How could it? If someone knows the secret, let me know. Instead, I drizzled olive oil over it and then sprinkled on the topping, along with a little salt and garlic powder.

I’m not gonna lie, the taste was a little weird. I kind of put the bowl aside while I did stuff online. But then I kept catching myself reaching for it…until it was gone. I don’t think it was just my love of popcorn, I think the flavor grows on you.

Have you ever heard of a popcorn topping weirder than kelp powder?

  1. Not sure if this is weirder than kelp, but I’ve often added the following turmeric, bragg’s liquid aminos, cayenne pepper and apple cider vinegar to my popcorn. Along with the required, salt, pepper, coconut oil, nutritional yeast and G A R L I C!
