Marmite popcorn

Serves: 6
Prep: 15
Cook: 15


    • 2 Tbs rice bran oil
    • 100g popping corn
    • 1 Tbs margarine
    • 1 Tbs Marmite™
    • 2 Tbs finely grated parmesan (33g)


    1. Preheat oven to 150ºC fan bake and line a large oven tray with baking paper.
    2. Heat oil in a large heavy-based saucepan on medium-high. Add popping corn and shake the pan gently to coat kernels in oil. Cover with a lid. Shake the pan every 15-30 seconds, until virtually all the corn has popped - the pops should be 2-3 seconds apart at this point. Transfer to a large bowl.
    3. Place margarine in a microwave-safe bowl and microwave until melted. Add Marmite and whisk until well combined (this will take a couple of minutes). Pour over the popcorn and stir until popcorn is evenly coated. Add parmesan and toss to combine.
    4. Pour popcorn onto prepared tray and spread out in a single layer. Bake for 5-7 minutes, until crisped up. Leave to cool for 5 minutes before serving.


    • You can use a 100g packet of natural flavour microwave popcorn instead of the corn kernels and oil. Microwave as per instructions on the packet, then proceed with step 3.
    • Parmesan can be omitted if preferred.
    • Popcorn is best eaten fresh, but will keep well in an airtight container for a few days.
