I really love popcorn but I would like to spice it up a little. Does anyone have any good ideas? Non-dairy please. :)

Do you like hot and spicy? If so, try gluten-free wasabi, candied ginger, wasabi-flavoured fried peas and black sesame seeds. Kettle corn, though so simple, is so good with a bit of sugar and sea salt (1/2 c popcorn, 1/4 c sugar, 1 t fine sea salt). You put the sugar on the kernels just as they begin to pop.

Wasabi and Ginger Popcorn...one of my favourites ever...if you cannot use butter you can sub a neutral oil.

That looks great! Thanks! I tried making some cinnamon and sugar popcorn and it all fell to the bottom of the bowl. I wonder how I could get it to "stick"

...Maybe with some light olive oil (or another light tasting oil).

We like garlic powder added too. :D

That reminds me. I posted a recipe for awesome garlic shoestring "fries" yesterday. You infuse olive oil with garlic and add to the fries before baking. Anyway, as a result you get some lovely crispy minced garlic that is awesome on popcorn (and pretty much anything - except maybe chocolate cake!). The infused oil would be fabulous on the popcorn, too. Is there ever such a thing as too much garlic? I think not. :D

We use Nutellex to help ours stick but we aren't all that adventurous really so we have it plain with perhaps a tiny bit of salt or on its own without any flavour.

I make Kettle corn on the stove top. Put enough oil to coat the bottom of the pan and place one or two kernals in it as it heats up on medium heat (the number 6 works best on my stove). Stay by the stove. When the test kernals pop put 1 Tablespoon of sugar in the center and swish it around quickly to evenly distribute it throughout the hot oil. Then quickly pour enough kernals in to coat the bottom of the pan, put the lid on and swirl again to mix the sugar and kernals. As the popcorn pops it will be coated with melted sugar which has become caramel and you will have caramel corn. Have a bowl ready to dump it out of the pan and a large spoon in case it sticks little. As soon as the popping slows down (or the lid starts to pop off) pour the popcorn intoa bowl and sprinkle with kosher salt or sea salt while still hot. Wait a mintue to eat or the caramel can burn you (be careful not to touch it either and don't leave the popcorn in the pan or it will burn). It's a wonderful treat however and once you make it you will be hooked!

We eat Indian-spiced popcorn regularly. I sprinkle stovetop cooked popcorn with salt, cumin, coriander, and chili pepper (all to taste). My father-in-law (born in Mumbai!) loves it.

Great thread. I'm going to try adding some wasabi powder and ginger powder to popcorn soon!

I can't eat popcorn, but I have broken styrofoam, I mean ricecakes, into popcorn sized chunks and put melted butter on them. Tastes alot like the real thing, and no hulls to get stuck between my teeth! I even tried adding a little cinnamon and sugar, and it was OK. I'm going to have to try the garlic - it sounds yummy!

I have a problem eating rice cakes, they don't always sit well, but I am going to try this with those thin styrofoam corn cakes I buy at Sprouts. Have you tried the corn cakes? They are very thin and actually taste pretty good. At least smeared with dairy free marg and peanut butter. Thanks for the suggestion!
