2. Butterfly Cheese Popcorn


  • 1/2 cup Butterfly popcorn kernels 
  • 2 tbsp. garlic flavored or vegetable oil
  • 1 tbsp. melted butter, optional
  • 2 tbsp. nutritional yeast or brewer’s yeast (found at health food stores, adds a cheese-like flavor without the calories or fat)
  • 1 tsp. curry powder, optional


  1. In a large, heavy-bottomed pot (with a lid), place oil and about 3 Butterfly popcorn kernels.
  2. Heat over medium-high heat until a kernel pops. Add remaining popcorn; cover. 
  3. Once corn begins to pop, shake pot constantly over heat. 
  4. When popping slows, remove pot from heat and transfer popcorn to a serving bowl.
  5. Pour butter over popcorn, if desired, and toss.
