Popcorn (Stovetop)

It was the most difficult grain for me to "give up" while healing. I have an electric popcorn popper which I love, but my friend popped some popcorn on my stove top during her recent visit to my home.

Popcorn is an easy, quick and satisfying REAL snack food.

  • Large, heavy pot

  • 1/3 to 2/3 cup popcorn kernels

  • 2 - 4 TBS oil of choice (mine is coconut oil) - some for popping and some for topping

  • salt (or other seasoning) to taste

  1. Heat oil on stove top in a large heavy pot*

  2. Add kernels to cover bottom

  3. Cover with lid (Might need to shake occasionally)

  4. Turn off heat when popping seems to have stopped

  5. Transfer to a heat safe bowl, add more oil, salt/spices to taste

Notes: Since popcorn is a grain it should be avoided while on all healing diets. Yet, popcorn is a great REAL FOOD snack when prepared at home using fresh, NON-GMO, and organic ingredients.
