This Miso Butter Furikake Popcorn is a vegan and gluten-free umami bomb snack with Japanese flavors.
If you’re team savory snacks over sweet, this popcorn recipe is going to be a hit. It’s full of salty, umami flavors, crunch and a touch of sweetness. It’s time to upgrade your typical popcorn with Japanese flavors from miso and furikake!
Ingredients for Furikake Popcorn
To make this addicting gluten-free snack, you’ll need:
Popcorn. Use whole, unpopped kernels (not the microwave kind).
Vegan butter. You can use any brand of vegan butter. However, any neutral oil (like coconut or avocado) will also work.
Miso paste. Use white miso paste for a subtle, slightly sweet and salty flavor addition.
Furikake seasoning. I recommend making your own with this gluten-free recipe. However, you can find furikake seasoning at many grocery stores and Asian markets. Just make sure it’s vegan if you don’t want to eat fish!
How to Make Furikake Miso Popcorn
I recommend popping your popcorn in a microwave using this method for Zero Waste/Low Waste Popcorn. Another option is to air pop your kernels, then season them.
Do this in a large pot big enough to hold all of the popped kernels. Start by melting down the butter. Then slowly stir in the miso, off of the heat. This will keep the flavor and probiotics intact. Finally, toss your popcorn into the mixture to coat then finish with the furikake!
Other Seasoning Ideas
If you don’t have furikake, try these other flavoring ideas to amp up the miso butter on your popcorn:
A sprinkle of cayenne pepper
White and black sesame seeds
Everything bagel seasoning
Turmeric or curry powder
Popcorn is a great blank canvas for so many delicious flavors, the possibilities here are pretty endless.
This recipe is great with popcorn, but if you want to try something different, make cute miniature popped sorghum. Then coat it in the miso furikake butter as described in the recipe.
