  • 1/4 cup coconut oil
  • 2/3 cup popcorn
 kernels divided
  • 1-2 tsp olive oil
  • 1/3 cup finely chopped italian parsley
  • 2 tbsp grated parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt


  1. Heat a heavy-bottom pot with a lid over medium high heat. I use my Dutch oven, but any big pot will do.

  2. Add the coconut oil plus just 4 popcorn kernels into the pot.
  3. Cover and cook for 4-6 minutes, or until all 4 of the kernels have popped - you’ll be able to hear them pop.
  4. Remove the lid once the 4 kernels have popped and take out the popped popcorn. Doing this ensures the temperature is perfect when you add the rest of the kernels.
  5. Add the remaining kernels.
  6. Cover the pot and cook, shaking frequently, for 2-5 minutes or until the popping dies down quite a bit.

  7. Once you can only hear just a pop or so every second, remove the pot from heat and take off the lid. This will allow the popcorn to dry out a little from releasing the moisture.
  8. Take 4 cups of the freshly popped popcorn and toss with the olive oil, finely chopped italian parsley, grated parmesan, and 1/2 tsp. sea salt.
  9. Store in an airtight container.
