Happy National Popcorn Day: This Is the Other Way to Make Popcorn (10 Minutes Only)

Happy National Popcorn Day: This Is the Other Way to Make Popcorn (10 Minutes Only)

We live in a society that has turned us into passive popcorn consumers. 🍿🍿🍿 That changes today dear popcorn loving friend. Put down the pre-bagged stuff, shut the microwave door, and learn how to make Smartbite popcorn—the best popcorn, if you ask us.

 

LITTLE STORYTIME: Being short has its advantages but like everything in life, it comes with some shortcomings (no pun intended). If you ever purchased a stool so that you can reach stuff in your kitchen, we hear ya, we feel ya, we've been there. In fact, we are still there.


When I was trying to reach my fancy schmancy popcorn maker (that I've got a chance to use only a couple of times) and could not find my stool that would grant me extra height, I decided to use a spatula. That was the worst idea ever. Second worst idea was to have tiled floor in the kitchen because that's where the popcorn maker landed and that's exactly where its short life ended 😵😓😭 (the rhyming here is purely coincidental). To console better, I decided to come up with a new popcorn hack and it turned out to be my best idea so far. It's not patented yet but I am seriously considering it.™

 

Smartbite corn cakes are pretty much popcorn's cousins. It's puffed corn. 🌽🌽🌽 Aaand it's also boosted with either superfood quinoa or superseed chia. We may as well call it super popcorn. Speaking of corn, did you know that we use the best corn there is aka certified organic, non-GMO premium corn grown at small Italian farms. YUM! 😋

 


Now let's popcorn type you. 😀 You are either: 

a) buying pre-popped, pre-flavored popcorn in a big bag, which is a big waste of money 

b) making microwave popcorn, which is marginally better but still has a cardboard-y texture and is more expensive than it needs to be

c) only eating popcorn at the movies, where all of the seasoning is artificial and heavy-handed (and is THE BIGGEST SCAM OF ALL TIME)

d) making your own stovetop popcorn given you have enough time and mastered the technique which is 100% amazing and we are 100% proud of you

... and you are about to become...

e) making your own super popcorn which is super quick, super easy, super delicious, super ______ (insert your fave adjective here)

 

This Smartbite super popcorn (SSP) is everything and more but mainly it's: 

〰 Wholesome
〰 Satisfying
〰 Portable
〰 Customizable
〰 Chocolate-y
〰 Coconut-y
〰 Crunchy
〰 SUPER quick
〰 SUPER delicious

 

 

TIME NEEDED: 10 minutes 


INGREDIENTS 


PREPARATION

1. Crumble all 24 corn cakes to bite size pieces in a large bowl. 

2. Melt your vegan butter 🧈 in a small saucepan (do not bother washing it as you'll need it again for chocolate) over medium heat and pour it all over crumbled corn cakes. Using your hands, mix all ingredients together. 

3. Now the fun and highly customizable part starts. We decided to go with cinnamon, sugar, chocolate 🍫 and coconut 🥥 flakes but maybe you're feeling more like hot 🥵 sauce and cheeze curds. You do you! In this step, we add cinnamon and sugar and mix everything reaaally well. 

4. Melt chocolate in the sauce pan over medium heat and pour over your Smartbite popcorn. 

5. Sprinkle with coconut flakes and taadaa: you are done! ✌

You'll never look at regular ice cream sandwich the same after your try these!

The day we mastered the caramelized rice cakes, we knew we had to take it to the next level—with it being summertime and all—so we sandwiched some ice cream between 2 crispy rice crackers and dipped it in dark chocolate and sprinkles for good measure. Best idea we’ve ever had.

This easy chickpea salad is one of our fave salads. We love how quick and simple it is. Eat this straight out of the bowl with your crunchy multigrain crackers or use it to top salad greens. We love the combination of avocado, apple + vegan yoghurt, but the salad is just as delicious with some fresh herbs — try basil, parsley, or even fresh mint.
