I made this last night, and really enjoyed the infusion of cayenne on the popcorn (great idea to add to the oil, instead of sprinkled on top)

I love putting nutritional yeast on popcorn - since I can't use any salt this gives it so much delicious flavor. So glad to see this as one of the recipes!

Me too - my Mom used to put it on popcorn when we were kids and we didn't even know she was tricking us into eating something healthy!!
