Yummy Mummy Monday: Homemade Microwave Popcorn

 Next time you have a craving for popcorn this is a fun idea to try. Skip the store- bought versions with their artificial flavourings and try making your own microwave popcorn. It’s super simple and a fun idea for movie nights and sleepovers. Now all you have to decide is what movie to watch. 😉
Ingredients:
1/3 cup popcorn kernels
1 tbsp olive oil or butter (we tried a dairy- free/ vegan butter- style spread made with coconut oil and it was delish)
1/2 tsp salt
1 brown paper bag
Directions:
1. Scoop the popcorn kernels into the bag followed by the oil/ butter and salt.
2. Roll the bag down about 1- 2″, leaving a small opening for steam to escape and plenty of space for the popcorn to expand .
3. Put in the microwave for approx. 2 minutes (the timing took some trial and error to figure out and can vary by microwave, so if you’re unsure how long start at 1 minute 30 seconds and add time as needed).
4. Remove bag from microwave, sprinkle with any additional seasonings & enjoy!
For anyone who loves buttery popcorn but has to avoid dairy, the spread we used is the ‘Zen Budha Buttery- Style Spread’ by Raw Foodz a great option that is also vegan/ vegetarian friendly.
