With the Oscars coming up this weekend, I thought I'd share 3 tasty popcorn recipes you can make for your next movie night. And by recipes I mean flavor combinations because, let's be real, I did not measure anything. Nor should I be the one to determine how much seasoning you want on your popcorn!

We made all of these (vegan) recipes with our Whirly Pop and vegetable oil. You can also use coconut oil or olive oil if you'd like.

Flavor #1: Everything But The Bagel

Everything But the Bagel Popcorn

Ingredients:

  • Oil of Choice
  • Trader Joe's Organic Popping Corn
  • Everything But The Bagel seasoning from Trader Joes

I've been really obsessed with this seasoning from Trader Joe's as of late, so of course I had to try it in popcorn and I actually really enjoyed it. True to an everything bagel, the aroma is potent so I would not recommend this for a first date.

Flavor #2: Cinnamon Sugar

Cinnamon Sugar Popcorn

Ingredients:

  • Oil of Choice
  • Trader Joe's Organic Popping Corn
  • Cinnamon
  • Sugar

This combination really reminded me of French Toast Crunch cereal. So if you like that, this combo is right up your alley! It was delicious and probably my favorite of the three recipes we made. A perfect treat if you're looking for something sweet after dinner.

Flavor #3: Cheesy Garlic

Cheesy Garlic Vegan Popcorn

Ingredients:

  • Oil of Choice
  • Trader Joe's Organic Popping Corn
  • Nutritional Yeast
  • Tony Chachere's Creole Seasoning 
  • Garlic Powder

Again, not a great one for a first date (because garlic), but definitely delicious (because garlic). I've been looking for a way to use nutritional yeast that actually tastes good. I've found that having it plain on popcorn is pretty bland, but this combo kept it interesting and still "cheesy."

And there you have it! 3 easy recipes you can try for your next batch of popcorn.
