This nutritional yeast popcorn is full of “cheesy” flavor but it’s completely vegan! This stovetop recipe is easy to make and filled with good-for-you ingredients!


  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil or canola oil
  • 1/2 cup unpopped popcorn kernels
  • 1/4 cup nutritional yeast
  • Salt to taste


  1. Add the oil to a large pot or dutch oven and heat over medium-high heat for 30 seconds.
  2. Add the popcorn kernels to the hot oil and immediately cover with a lid.
  3. Pop the popcorn, shaking every few seconds to distribute the oil and to ensure the kernels on the bottom don’t burn, about 2-3 minutes.
  4. Transfer the popcorn to a large bowl and sprinkle with nutritional yeast and salt. Toss the popcorn until coated.
  5. If the seasoning doesn’t stick, lightly spray the popcorn with olive oil and sprinkle with seasoning.
  6. Add additional salt to taste.
