  • 1 1/2  cups  finely grated Parmesan (use a microplane to grate)
  • 1/4  cup  chives, chopped finely
  • 3 Tablespoons  coconut oil (or other cooking oil)
  • 1/2 cup white popping corn
  • 1/4 -1/3 cup melted butter (some people like lighter butter, some heavier. You do you)
  • sea salt to taste


  1. Grate cheese with a microplane and chop chives

  2. Place a large pot on cooktop on high heat, add oil and three kernels of corn

  3. When kernel pops, carefully add the rest of the popcorn and place lid on pot

  4. Lower heat to medium/high and shake the heck out of that pot until you hear the popping stop

  5. Remove lid, allow to cool a bit

  6. Melt butter in a small sauce pan

  7. Use a knife to stir popcorn as you drizzle with melted butter, continue to stir with a knife as you alternate sprinkling with chives and parmesan

  8. Taste. Parmesan is quite salty so I want you to get an idea of how much salt to add. Add a pinch of salt at a time while stirring and stop when you are happy with the taste!

  9. Share even though you'll be tempted to eat it all yourself
