What to put on popcorn

with 2 comments

I had a post long ago with ideas for popcorn seasonings. Mark Bittman has a post of general advice about making popcorn, and he offers these seasoning ideas as part of that post:

Toss any of these with just-cooked popcorn, alone or in combination. Since some are more potent than others, start with a light sprinkle and taste as you go.

  • Chopped fresh herbs
  • Black pepper
  • Chili powder
  • Curry powder, or garam or chaat masala
  • Old Bay seasoning
  • Five-spice powder
  • Toasted sesame seeds
  • Cayenne or red chile flakes
  • Grated Parmesan cheese
  • Brown sugar
  • Finely ground nuts or shredded, unsweetened coconut
  • Chopped dried fruit

  1. A couple people in the comments there mentioned nutritional yeast, and I can heartily endorse that recommendation. Salt and nutritional yeast is the topping of choice at my house.
