Ingredients List

Here’s what you’ll need to make this delightful munchie:

  • 1/2 cup of popcorn kernels
  • 3 tablespoons of coconut oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground turmeric

  • Himalayan pink salt, to taste

Note: If you’re after a hint of sweetness, consider adding a light dusting of cinnamon as an alternative seasoning.

Instructions

  1. Warm up the coconut oil in a sizeable heavy-bottomed pot on medium-high heat.
  2. Add a few popcorn kernels to the pot; once they pop, toss in the rest of the kernels.

  4. Sprinkle the turmeric, black pepper, and salt over the popcorn, then give it a hearty shake to distribute the spices evenly. Voila! Your Turmeric and Black Pepper Popcorn is ready to rock your taste buds.
