Nutritional yeast also known as Nooch is an excellent source of vitamins, minerals, and high-quality protein.

Portion Size: 7-8 cups popped corn

Serving Size: 1 serving


Corn Kernels, dried ¼ cup

Oil/ Unsalted Butter 2 tbsp

Nutritional Flakes, fortified 2 tbsp

Salt Optional (As suggested by the dietitian)


Add the cooking in a deep pot along with one popcorn kernel. Place a lid on the pot and then place the pot over medium-high heat. Allow the oil to heat until the kernel pops.

Once the single kernel pops, lift the lid on the pot, add the rest of the popcorn kernels, and cover with the lid. Make sure all the kernels are coated in the hot oil. Let the pot continue to heat over medium-high, shaking the pot occasionally, until all the kernels pop.

Remove the pot from the heat and immediately pour the popped corn into a large bowl. Sprinkle the nutritional yeast over top, then serve.
