  • 3 tbsp vegetable oil OR canola oil OR coconut oil
  • 1/2 cup popcorn kernels

For the Topping

  • 3 tbsp butter melted
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt optional*
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 1/4 cup parmesan cheese


  • Set a large Dutch-oven or large pot over medium-high heat, add the oil. Place 3 popcorn kernels in the oil. When the first kernel pops, add the remaining kernels and cover. Remove from the heat for 15-20 seconds, then return to the heat and shake every 1-2 minutes. After about 3-4 minutes all of the kernels should pop. Remove the lid and pour the popcorn into a large bowl.
  • In a small mixing bowl, combine the melted butter, garlic, salt, and pepper. Drizzle over the popcorn and stir to combine. Sprinkle in the parmesan cheese, tossing as you go. Enjoy immediately.


*Depending on how salty your parmesan is, you may not need to add any salt.
