>> "CREATIVE LIVING," UTILIZING TODAY'S TECHNOLOGY WITH THE BEST OF THE PAST TO BRING YOU INNOVATIVE IDEAS AND UP-TO-DATE INFORMATION FOR CREATIVE LIFESTYLES IN TODAY'S ACTIVE WORLD, WITH YOUR HOST, SHERYL BORDEN. >> THANKS FOR JOINING ME TODAY FOR "CREATIVE LIVING." WE'RE GOING TO DEMONSTRATE HOW TO PREPARE MEALS FOR VEGETARIANS FEATURING A NEW GRAIN PRODUCT, AND WE'LL SHOW YOU HOW TO MAKE A BUTTERFLY USING FANTASY FILM. ONE OF MY GUESTS IS BONNIE MATTHEWS, AND SHE'S THE COFOUNDER OF FREEKEH FOODS, LOCATED IN MINNEAPOLIS, MINNESOTA. BONNIE SAYS THAT FREEKEH IS THE PERFECT WHOLE GRAIN FOR VEGETARIANS BECAUSE IT'S FLAVORFUL AND IT STILL PROVIDES AN ABUNDANCE OF NUTRIENTS THAT CAN SOMETIMES BE DIFFICULT TO FIND AS A VEGETARIAN. IF YOU HAVEN'T HEARD OF FREEKEH, IT'S A BETTER ALTERNATIVE TO RICE IN QUICK ONE-POT MEALS BECAUSE IT HOLDS UP BETTER. THE WORD "FREEKEH" MEANS "TO RUB," AND IT WAS CREATED BY ACCIDENT OVER 2,000 YEARS AGO. WE'LL BEGIN THE SHOW TODAY WITH BARBARA TROMBLEY, AND SHE'S THE PRESIDENT OF ART INSTITUTE GLITTER. AND BARBARA'S GOING TO DEMONSTRATE HOW TO WORK WITH A PRODUCT CALLED FANTASY FILM AND MAKE LOTS OF THINGS WITH WINGS, AND THEY'RE ALL QUICK AND EASY TO MAKE. AND SINCE YOU DETERMINE THE SHAPE OF THE PROJECT, YOU CAN LITERALLY MAKE ANY ANIMAL, INSECT, OR WHATEVER YOU WANT TO MAKE. SHE'S FROM COTTONWOOD, ARIZONA. BARBARA, THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR COMING. I NEVER KNEW THERE COULD BE SO MANY THINGS MADE WITH BUTTERFLIES AND OTHER CREATURES WITH WINGS. >> ALL DIFFERENT TYPES OF TECHNIQUES. ISN'T IT GREAT? >> WELL, I DO SCRAPBOOKING, AND I LIKE TO MAKE CARDS, AND I'VE FOUND THAT IN LOOKING THROUGH THE MAGAZINES AND THINGS, BUTTERFLIES AND WINGED CREATURES ARE REALLY POPULAR. >> AND YOU CAN MAKE THEM WITH RUBBER STAMPS, OR YOU CAN FREEHAND THEM WITH GLITTER, OR YOU CAN FREEHAND THEM WITH FANTASY FILM. >> AND YOU'RE GONNA SHOW US HOW TO DO THAT. >> I AM. >> BUT LET'S JUST TALK ABOUT SOME OF THE UNIQUE THINGS ABOUT THE SAMPLES THAT YOU BROUGHT. >> THAT IS A RUBBER-STAMPED DRAGONFLY, AND THEN THE FANTASY FILM IS PRESSED AROUND THE OUTSIDE OF IT. YOU SAVE YOUR SCRAPS, AND THEN YOU IRON YOUR SCRAPS TOGETHER. >> YOU NEVER THROW ANYTHING AWAY. >> NEVER, AND YOU CAN USE THEM AS A TEMPLATE. YOU CAN PUT A TEMPLATE ON THEM AND CUT THEM OUT. >> AND THEN ON THE ROCK? >> THAT IS MY ANCIENT RELIC TECHNIQUE. IT'S KIND OF AN ANTIQUING TECHNIQUE USING THE DESIGNER DRIES CLEAR. I'LL SHOW YOU HOW TO DO THAT. >> OH, OK. THIS IS JUST SO COLORFUL. LET ME LIFT THIS UP SO WE CAN SEE. >> THIS IS A TECHNIQUE DEVISED BY EMILY MILLER, WHO'S ON STAFF WITH ME. ISN'T IT BEAUTIFUL? >> IT IS. I LOVE ALL THE DIFFERENT COLORS, AND THIS IS MADE WITH FANTASY FILM, WHICH YOU'RE GONNA SHOW US IN JUST A MINUTE. THAT'S REALLY PRETTY--A 3-DIMENSIONAL EFFECT. >> THAT IS DONE ON A TILE WITH FANTASY FILM AND FANTASY FIBER. REALLY SIMPLE GIFT TECHNIQUE. >> AND YOU'RE GONNA SHOW US THE FIBERS IN A MINUTE. GOSH, IT'S SO SOFT. IT'S AMAZING. THIS CANDLE. >> THE BUTTERFLY ON THIS IS DONE ON CARDSTOCK, AND THEN IT'S FORMED WITH YOUR FINGERS AFTERWARDS, AFTER IT'S ALL DRY. IT'S DONE ON THE FRONT AND BACK. >> OH, OK. NOW, THIS IS ANOTHER ONE OF THOSE ANTIQUE RELIC TECHNIQUES. >> IT IS. YOU CAN FRAME IT. YOU CAN DO IT ON A ROCK AND USE IT LIKE A PETROGLYPH, OR YOU CAN FRAME IT. >> THAT IS SO PRETTY. AND... LET ME LAY THIS DOWN. YOU'RE GONNA SHOW US THE RUBBER STAMPS IN A MINUTE. ANOTHER WINGED CREATURE, A LITTLE BEE. >> AND THIS IS BENDING THE WINGS, 3-DIMENSIONALIZING THE WINGS, ADDING WIRES. >> THIS LOOKS LIKE A PIECE OF FABRIC LACE. DID IT START OUT LACE? >> IT'S THE GLITTER LACE TECHNIQUE THAT WE USE. THERE'S NO LACE ON IT. >> OH, THERE'S NOT? >> NO, BUT YOU EMBELLISH IT WITH BEADS AND REALLY GAUDY IT UP GORGEOUSLY. >> WELL, I KIND OF LIKE IT, MYSELF. AND COVERS TO PHOTO ALBUMS OR SCRAPBOOKS? >> THAT'S A SIGN-IN BOOK, AND IT'S DONE WITH A COLLAGE KIND OF TECHNIQUE WITH BEADS AND GLASS GLITTER. >> OH, IT'S SO PRETTY, AND WHAT A NICE WAY TO REALLY SPICE UP SOMETHING THAT MAYBE IS KIND OF BLAH TO START WITH. >> IT'S JUST A PAPER ALBUM. >> AND WE SAVED THE BEST FOR LAST. THIS IS SO PRETTY BACK HERE. THIS IS HUGE. A WALL HANGING OR FOR A COSTUME? >> IT'S HUMAN WINGS. >> HUMAN WINGS. WE NEED THOSE. >> THIS IS DONE WITH 20-INCH-WIDE FILM. >> THE FANTASY FILM. >> MM-HMM. IT'S DONE WITH 20-INCH-WIDE FILM. IT COULD BE 10 FEET LONG. IT COULD HAVE A WONDERFUL TRAIL TO IT, BUT THIS IS CHILDREN'S WINGS. >> THAT IS SO PRETTY. OK, WELL, NOW THAT YOU'VE WHET OUR APPETITE, WE'RE READY TO LEARN HOW TO DO THIS. >> OK. I PUT DOWN A LAYER OF THE FANTASY FILM UNDERNEATH. >> THAT'S WHAT THIS IS. >> MM-HMM, AND THEN SOME OF THIS COVERED WIRE. I'VE USED IT TO FORM, HOPEFULLY, WING SECTIONS. >> AND DOES IT COME IN OTHER COLORS, OR DOES IT JUST COME IN BLACK? >> IT COMES IN ALL DIFFERENT COLORS. >> OK. NOW LET'S LOOK AT THIS. THIS IS THE FANTASY FILM THAT YOU KEEP TALKING ABOUT, AND IT COMES IN LOTS OF COLORS, TOO, DOES IT? >> IT DOES. IT COMES IN BLUES AND GREENS AND PINKS AND YELLOWS AND BROWNS. >> IT'S SO THIN. >> AND IT'S INTERESTING BECAUSE YOU CAN MIX YOUR COLORS. >> LIKE YOU SAID, KEEP THOSE SCRAPS. >> WELL, YOU CAN JUST PUT, LIKE, A BROWN LAYER ON THE BOTTOM AND A SHOCKING PINK LAYER ON TOP OR GREENS AND BLUES TOGETHER TO CREATE YOUR OWN COLOR. >> HOW IN THE WORLD DID YOU COME UP WITH THIS PRODUCT? THIS IS AMAZING. >> I JUST WOKE UP ONE MORNING, AND IT DAWNED ON ME THIS IS A WONDERFUL THING. SO, WHAT I'VE DONE IS FORMED THE WIRES, AND WHAT YOU DO IS KIND OF MAKE THEM FLAT. >> AS FLAT AS YOU CAN GET IT. >> MM-HMM. I'VE LEFT SOME OF THE WIRE STICKING OUT ON PURPOSE, AND THEN WE ARE GONNA PUT IN A LAYER OF-- >> SO YOU'RE MAKING A SANDWICH. >> THAT'S A GOOD WAY OF PUTTING IT. YOU CAN ALSO PUT SOME OF THIS FIBER IN BETWEEN, IF YOU LIKE. NOW, FILM AND FIBER, THEY WILL HEAT-BOND TO EACH OTHER. >> OH, THEY WILL? >> RIGHT. >> THAT FIBER IS SO THIN, I WOULD JUST ASSUME IT WOULD TURN TO COTTON CANDY, ALMOST. >> YEAH. YOU HAVE TO BE CAREFUL NOT TO HAVE A DWELL TIME TOO LONG OR THE HEAT TOO HIGH. THIS HEAT IS ON A SILK SETTING. >> IS THIS FREEZER PAPER, OR IS THAT JUST PARCHMENT? >> THIS IS PARCHMENT PAPER. EXACTLY RIGHT. >> AND THAT'S BASICALLY TO PROTECT THE IRON. >> THIS IS TO PROTECT THE IRON. EXACTLY. >> AND ON COTTON. NO STAIN. >> SO I'VE KIND OF GONE AROUND THE WIRE AND IN BETWEEN. LET ME GET A LITTLE BIT CLOSER. AND THAT IS BONDING THE TWO LAYERS. I'M GONNA TURN IT OVER. >> SO YOU DO IT ON BOTH SIDES. >> I'M GONNA DO IT ON BOTH SIDES. YEAH, THIS IS HEAT-BONDABLE FILM. SO YOU CAN HEAT IT WITH A CANDLE. YOU CAN HEAT IT WITH A HEAT TOOL. YOU CAN HEAT IT WITH AN... EMBOSSING GUN. >> NOW, ARE YOU SAYING INSTEAD OF USING THE IRON, THESE ARE OTHER WAYS TO DO IT? >> OTHER WAYS TO DO IT. >> OH. >> SO I'VE DONE THAT. >> THAT'S JUST ALMOST LIKE A LAMINATE. >> IT IS. IT IS KIND OF LIKE A LAMINATE. SO YOU CAN KIND OF ROUGH-CUT THIS AROUND... AND REALLY JUST SIMPLY ROUGH-CUT IT. >> NOW, WHY DID YOU LEAVE SOME OF THAT METAL--OR THE WIRE EXPOSED? >> JUST FAIRY-ISH. SEE, WE'VE LEFT ONE EXPOSED HERE AS WELL. >> OH, THIS IS WHAT YOU'RE MAKING, RIGHT HERE. >> RIGHT, BECAUSE AFTERWARDS, YOU CAN ACTUALLY ADD BEADS ONTO THE ENDS OF IT. >> MM-HMM. SO DO YOU MAKE, LIKE, IF YOU'RE MAKING A LARGE BUTTERFLY, DO YOU MAKE IT IN SECTIONS AND THEN PUT IT TOGETHER, OR WOULD YOU LAY OUT THE ENTIRE WIRE DESIGN FOR THE ENTIRE BUTTERFLY? >> WE DO JUST, LIKE, IF THIS WAS THE TOP WING, WE'D DO ONE SECTION OF THE WINGS, ONE QUADRANT AT A TIME. THEN YOU CAN ACTUALLY TAKE A CANDLE AND COME UP TO THE EDGES, AND YOU CAN SEE HOW THE CANDLE, JUST GETTING IT CLOSE TO THE HEAT OF THE CANDLE-- >> OH. IT ALMOST FOLDS IT UNDER. >> IT FOLDS IT UNDER. >> IT JUST KIND OF SEARS THE EDGE. >> EXACTLY. YOU CAN ALSO USE INCENSE TO START A HOLE. LET'S SAY YOU WANT A PARTICULAR HOLE SOMEWHERE. >> AND YOU WANT TO GO ALL THE WAY AROUND THE HOLE. >> YOU DO. YOU CAN ALSO USE A HEAT TOOL, AND THAT WILL DO THE SAME THING. YOU CAN JUST HOLD THE HEAT TOOL JUST IN THE MIDDLE LIKE THIS. NOW, IN INCENSE WHAT IT DOES-- >> AND IT FORMS A HOLE. THAT'S HOW YOU GOT THOSE HOLES IN IT. >> UH-HUH. AND, ALSO, YOU CAN SEE IT CHANGES THE COLOR OF IT A BIT. >> USING THE HEAT TOOL. >> USING ANY KIND OF HEAT. >> OH, ANY KIND OF HEAT WILL DO IT. OK. DO YOU HAVE A PREFERENCE? >> WELL, THIS IS NICE BECAUSE IT DOESN'T LEAVE CHAR MARKS. YOU MAY WANT CHAR MARKS. NOW, YOU CAN NOTICE ON THIS ONE, WE'VE PUT FIBER IN BETWEEN THESE TWO LAYERS. >> AND HOW DID YOU DO THAT? WAS THAT BEFORE YOU LAMINATED IT, SEALED IT? >> YOU PUT THE FIBER IN AND THEN IRON IT AND THEN IRON THIS OUTSIDE PIECE ON AFTERWARDS. >> OH, OK. I LIKE THE FIBER THROUGH THAT. >> YES. IT GETS REALLY--OH, THIS ONE'S DONE ON THE BACK. AND THEN YOU CAN JUST TAKE SOME FIBER--LET'S HEAT THIS A LITTLE MORE--AND YOU CAN TAKE AND JUST TWIST. >> SO IT STICKS. >> TWIST THE FIBER. >> SO WHEN YOU HEAT IT. >> YES. UH-HUH. AND YOU ALSO USE TWEEZERS TO DO THIS WITH SO YOU DON'T BURN YOUR HANDS. AND THEN YOU CAN JUST BOND THE FANTASY FILM WITH THE FIBER. >> YOU HAVE TO BE CAREFUL, I GUESS. >> BUT ISN'T THAT JUST-- >> BEAUTIFUL. >> BEAUTIFUL. >> SO THEN AFTER YOU MADE THE TWO UPPER WINGS, THE TWO LOWER WINGS, AND THE BODY, THEN HOW DO YOU ATTACH ALL OF THEM? >> YOU LEAVE THIS EXTRA WIRE HANGING. >> THAT'S WHAT IT'S FOR. >> AND YOU WILL TWIST THEM ALL TOGETHER, AND YOU CAN CREATE KIND OF A "U" SHAPE. >> AND IS THAT, THEN, WHY THE GOLD IS IN THE CENTER? IS THAT TO DISGUISE WHERE THE... >> IT IS. >> I SEE. NOW I'M CATCHING ON. >> ON THE HUMAN WINGS, YOU USE RIBBONS... >> TO COVER IT UP. >> AND YOU CAN LOOP THEM OVER YOUR ARMS, OR YOU CAN PUT IT IN THE BACK OF YOUR SHIRT. >> I SEE. THAT IS A NEAT PRODUCT. >> SO NOW THIS IS WITH THE FANTASY FILM AND A RUBBER STAMP, AND SIMPLY YOU JUST PUT THE INK ON THE STAMP. NOW, YOU NEED TO USE 3 LAYERS. >> WHY IS THAT? >> JUST FOR STRENGTH. 1, 2, 3. AND THEN THE PARCHMENT PAPER ON TOP TO PROTECT THE FILM FROM STICKING TO YOUR IRON. AND WE PRESS, PRESS, AND IRON. >> IT DIDN'T TAKE LONG. >> IT DOESN'T TAKE LONG AT ALL. AND THEN PEEL IT BACK, AND YOU CAN SEE THE IMPRESS OF THE RUBBER STAMP. THAT IS PERMANENT INK THAT WE USED ON THAT. AND THEN YOU CUT THIS ALL AWAY, AND ALL OF THESE--YOU CAN SEE ALL OF THESE--WHERE IT IS CURLED, THAT FILM IS HEAT-COOKED ALREADY, SHALL WE SAY? THOSE LITTLE PIECES OF THAT FILM--I WON'T CUT THE WHOLE THING OUT--BUT THESE PIECES OF THE FILM YOU SAVE IN ONE BOX, AND YOU CAN USE THOSE FOR CONFETTI. AND ALL OF THIS THAT IS RAW FILM STILL, YOU CAN BOND THAT ALL TOGETHER AND CREATE--IRONING IT BOTH SIDES--CREATE ANOTHER SHAPE AND USE A TEMPLATE AND CUT IT OUT. >> SO YOU HAVE A BOX OF SORT OF LEFTOVERS THAT YOU CAN USE FOR SMALLER PROJECTS. >> YOU REALLY WANT TO KEEP YOUR LEFTOVERS. >> THAT'S AMAZING. >> AND THEN THE OTHER THING WITH WINGS I WANTED TO SHOW YOU WAS THIS ANCIENT KIND OF RELIC TECHNIQUE. >> OH, YEAH, LIKE YOU DID ON THE ROCK AND ON THE PAINTING. >> RIGHT. >> AND THIS IS JUST A BUTTERFLY STAMP AGAIN. >> AGAIN, AND IT IS SIMPLY A MATTER OF ADDING THE ADHESIVE TO THE STAMP, AND THEN YOU'RE GONNA LET THIS DRY COMPLETELY. >> OH. >> AND WHEN IT IS CLEAR, YOU'LL SEE COMPLETELY--YOU CAN SEE THIS ONE IS CLEAR. >> OH, I NOTICED THAT. >> AND IT'S DIMENSIONAL. >> YOU CAN FEEL IT. IT'S HARD TO SEE, BUT YOU CAN FEEL IT. >> OK, THEN YOU TAKE GOLD PAINT AND YOU PAINT ON THE GOLD, AND THEN YOU CAN TAKE A DARKER--A REALLY DARK BROWN PAINT. >> COPPER AND BLACK, WAS IT? >> YEAH, AND THEN YOU PAINT THE ENTIRE SURFACE OF THIS AGAIN... TRYING TO GET INTO THE CREVICES. >> I SEE. JUST RUB IT ON THERE. >> YEAH, AND YOU'LL DO THE ENTIRE SURFACE OF WHATEVER YOU'RE PAINTING. AND THEN TAKE A DAMP CLOTH. I BALL IT UP, AND I SIMPLY WIPE THE SURFACE OFF, AND YOU GET THIS BEAUTIFUL... >> YOU CAN DO THAT ON WHAT? WOOD? >> OH, YEAH. >> YEAH, YOU'VE DONE IT ON ROCKS AND THINGS. >> AND THE DESIGNER DRIES CLEAR WORKS PERFECTLY FOR IT. >> THAT IS BEAUTIFUL. I HAD NO IDEA THAT'S HOW IT WAS DONE. AND WIPE OFF AS MUCH AS YOU WANT OR LEAVE IT AS DARK AS YOU WANT. >> THAT'S RIGHT. IT DOESN'T HAVE TO BE BROWNS. IT DOESN'T HAVE TO BE ANTIQUEY LIKE THIS. YOU CAN USE PURPLES AND PINKS, YOU KNOW? >> AND THESE ARE JUST ACRYLIC PAINTS. >> THESE ARE. THEY ARE. >> GOSH, THESE ARE WONDERFUL PROJECTS, BARB. THANK YOU SO MUCH. >> OH, YOU'RE WELCOME. >> BONNIE, THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR BEING HERE. IT SEEMS LIKE WHEN I COOK, I'VE ALWAYS GOT CHICKEN OR TURKEY, SOMETIMES LEFTOVER ROAST OR SOMETHING, AND I PUT THAT IN ALMOST EVERY RECIPE, BUT FOR PEOPLE WHO ARE VEGETARIANS, THEY ARE ALWAYS LOOKING FOR RECIPES JUST LIKE EVERYBODY ELSE IS, AND WE'RE GOING TO USE A SPECIAL WHOLE GRAIN, THAT'S ALMOST CALLED A PERFECT WHOLE GRAIN, CALLED FREEKEH. >> YEAH. IT'S A ROASTED GRAIN. IT'S BEEN AROUND FOR ABOUT 2,000 YEARS FROM THE MIDDLE EAST, BUT NOBODY REALLY KNEW ABOUT IT IN THE U.S. UNTIL RECENTLY, AND IT'S AWESOME. IT HAS A REALLY NICE TEXTURE, KIND OF LIKE A WHEATBERRY TEXTURE. >> AND IT WAS SORT OF DISCOVERED BY ACCIDENT. THERE WAS A BIG FIRE THAT BURNED DOWN THE CROP. >> YEAH. THESE VILLAGERS, THEY HAD A CONFLICT, LIKE, 2,000 YEARS AGO, AND ONE OF THEM BURNT THE OTHER GUY'S WHEAT FIELDS WHILE THEY WERE STILL GREEN AND IMMATURE, AND THEY WERE LEFT WITH THESE ROASTED GRAINS, SO THEY STARTED RUBBING OFF THE CHAFF, AND THEY WERE, LIKE, "WELL, LET'S COOK IT UP," AND THEY WERE LIKE, "HEY, THIS IS DELICIOUS." AND FREEKEH ACTUALLY MEANS "TO RUB" IN ARABIC, SO THEY RUBBED OFF THE BURNT PART, AND THEY STILL MAKE IT TODAY IN SMALL BATCHES OVER THERE. IT'S LIKE A--KIND OF LIKE WHAT WE DO WITH TURKEY WITH THANKSGIVING. THEY KIND OF DO IT AS A--THEY CALL IT, LIKE, THE FIRST OFFERING. >> OH, OK. AND IT'S ACTUALLY GROWN IN THE UNITED STATES, A LOT OF IT GROWN IN CALIFORNIA, I UNDERSTAND. >> YEAH. >> OK. AND AS I UNDERSTAND IT, YOU CAN SUBSTITUTE IT FOR RICE OR COUSCOUS IN ANY RECIPE. >> ABSOLUTELY. IF YOU'RE VEGETARIAN OR EVEN IF YOU'RE NOT, BUT IF YOU'RE LOOKING TO ADD MORE FIBER AND PROTEIN INTO YOUR DIET, THIS IS A GREAT NEW GRAIN TO PLAY WITH BECAUSE IT HAS 8 GRAMS OF PROTEIN AND 4 GRAMS OF FIBER. >> PER SERVING. >> YEAH, SO IT HELPS YOU STAY FEELING FULL, AND IT'S JUST A REALLY FUN VEHICLE TO ADD OTHER STUFF TO BECAUSE IT ABSORBS A LOT OF FLAVOR THAT YOU BRING TO IT. BUT IT ALSO COMES IN FLAVORS, TOO. >> SHOW US HOW YOU COOK IT. >> SO YEAH. SO YOU START OUT WITH A BAG OF FREEKEH, AND THERE'S ONE CUP OF DRY PRODUCT IN THERE, AND YOU COOK IT JUST LIKE RICE. YOU ADD 2 1/2 CUPS OF LIQUID. I SOMETIMES USE WATER OR BROTH, AND YOU POUR IT IN THERE AND BRING IT TO A BOIL AND THEN JUST LET IT SIMMER FOR ABOUT 20 TO 25 MINUTES. >> OH, IT IS ABOUT THE SAME AMOUNT OF TIME AS RICE. >> AND THEN I'VE PRECOOKED THIS FOR SOME REALLY YUMMY VEGETARIAN STUFFED PEPPERS. >> SO THIS IS THE ORIGINAL. >> YEAH. THIS IS JUST THE PLAIN ONE. >> IT'S A NICE GOLDEN COLOR RATHER THAN THE WHITE, LIKE THE WHITE RICE. >> YEAH. IT'S REALLY INTERESTING. AND THEN I'M ADDING SOME GARLIC. AND BY THE WAY, THIS GARLIC, YOU KNOW, IT COMES IN THESE LITTLE PACKETS NOWADAYS. YOU CAN FIND IT IN THE PRODUCE DEPARTMENT, AND IT'S GOT THE PEELING ALREADY TAKEN OFF. AND THEY LAST A REALLY GOOD LONG TIME IN THE FRIDGE, WHICH IS AWESOME. >> SAVES YOUR HANDS GETTING QUITE AS GARLICKY. >> YEAH, SO THAT'S A REAL TIME-SAVER. AND I'M GONNA PUT SOME FRESH TOMATOES IN HERE AND ADD A LITTLE JAR OF WHATEVER KIND OF SALSA THAT YOU LIKE. THROW THAT IN THERE. >> IF YOU LIKE SPICY, THIS WOULD BE A GOOD WAY TO GET THOSE EXTRA SPICES IN THERE, WOULDN'T IT? >> AND SOME CORN. I JUST USED SOME FROZEN CORN THAT I THAWED OUT A LITTLE BIT. >> UH-HUH. >> AND MIX THAT UP IN THERE. AND THEN I'M ADDING--IF YOU DARE--I'M ADDING A LITTLE BIT OF JALAPENO IN THERE. DICE THAT UP AND PUT THAT IN THERE. AND A LITTLE BIT OF CHILI POWDER. >> AND AGAIN MAYBE START WITH A LITTLE BIT... >> JUST A LITTLE. >> AND THEN ADD A LITTLE BIT MORE. >> YEAH. JUST A LITTLE BIT. NOT MUCH. JUST A LITTLE. AND THEN I'M GONNA ADD SOME BEANS BECAUSE I'M ALWAYS LOOKING FOR MORE PROTEIN. >> YEAH. >> AND ESPECIALLY FOR THIS, IT'S, LIKE, A REALLY DELICIOUS, HEARTY MEAL THAT'S GREAT WITH SOME SALAD ON THE SIDE OR SOME BROCCOLI, AND SO THERE ARE SO MANY AWESOME BEANS OUT THERE. YOU KNOW, LIKE IF YOU GO OUT TO EAT, IT SEEMS LIKE MOST PEOPLE COOK WITH BLACK BEANS, WHICH ARE DELICIOUS, BUT THERE'S THESE OTHER ONES CALLED ADUKI THAT HAVE 7 GRAMS OF PROTEIN, AND THEY'RE KIND OF SMALL. >> SO YOU'RE REALLY ADDING MORE PROTEIN TO AN ALREADY HIGH-PROTEIN DISH. >> AND THEY'RE REALLY FLAVORFUL. SO I RINSED THOSE OUT, AND I'M GONNA PUT THAT WHOLE CAN IN THERE. >> I THINK IT WOULD BE FUN, TOO--I GET IN A RUT AND TEND TO USE THE SAME ONES, LIKE YOU SAID. KIDNEY BEANS ALL THE TIME FOR A CERTAIN RECIPE. BUT IT WOULD BE KIND OF FUN JUST TO START EXPERIMENTING. WE MAY FIND ANOTHER FAVORITE WE DIDN'T EVEN KNOW THAT WAS AVAILABLE. >> YEAH. WELL, THERE'S PINTO BEANS, AND THERE'S ALSO THESE OTHER ONES THAT ARE REALLY PROMINENT IN CENTRAL AMERICA. THEY'RE JUST CALLED SMALL RED BEANS, AND THEY'RE DELICIOUS. >> SMALL RED BEANS. >> THEY'RE REAL SWEET AND NOT REAL STARCHY, YOU KNOW? SO I DIDN'T ADD ANY SALT TO THIS. YOU CAN, BUT I FIGURED, YOU KNOW, IT'S GOT SO MUCH FLAVOR ALREADY, I TRY TO KEEP THE SODIUM DOWN. >> AND THE CHICKEN BROTH, TOO, HAS SOME SALT IN IT. >> WELL, ACTUALLY, THIS ONE IS VEGETABLE BROTH, BUT YEAH. SO THEN THIS--I JUST PUT THIS RIGHT INSIDE HERE IN THESE... I'VE ALREADY STEAMED THESE JUST A LITTLE BIT IN ABOUT ONE INCH OF WATER IN A POT, JUST TO SOFTEN THEM. >> AND YOU COULD USE THE GREEN, THE RED, THE YELLOW. THEY'RE REALLY PRETTY. >> AND THEN THEY'RE READY TO GO, AND I JUST PUT THEM IN A CASSEROLE DISH THAT'S OVEN-PROOF, AND THEN YOU JUST KIND OF FILL THEM UP AS MUCH AS YOU WANT, AND... >> COULD THESE BE INDIVIDUALLY, THEN, FROZEN? WOULD YOU FREEZE THEM BEFORE YOU COOK THEM? >> YOU KNOW, I WOULD COOK THEM FIRST. WE'RE GONNA BAKE THESE FOR ABOUT HALF AN HOUR AT ABOUT 350, AND THEN IF YOU WANT YOU CAN TOP IT WITH A LITTLE CHEESE, LIKE AT THE LAST 5 OR 10 MINUTES, IF YOU WANT TO. AND THEN ONCE THEY'RE COOLED, I WOULD WRAP THEM UP INDIVIDUALLY IN ZIP LOCK BAGS AND FREEZE THEM. >> OH, OK. SO GO AHEAD AND COOK--WELL, THAT SAVES TIME THE NEXT TIME YOU'RE READY TO PREPARE THEM. >> AND YOU CAN ADD, YOU KNOW, OBVIOUSLY ANY OTHER KIND OF VEGETABLES YOU LIKE. MUSHROOMS ARE ALSO REALLY GOOD WITH THIS. >> IF YOU MADE THIS, THE FILLING, COULD THIS THEN BE SERVED WITH SOMETHING ELSE AS A SIDE DISH? >> ABSOLUTELY, YEAH. YOU COULD ABSOLUTELY JUST COOK THIS UP, JUST HEAT IT UP, OR HAVE IT AS A COLD SALAD FOR, LIKE, A PICNIC OR SOMETHING. >> OH. UH-HUH. >> AND MAYBE I'D ADD JUST A LITTLE BIT OF LIME TO IT RIGHT THERE AT THE END. BUT THIS IS READY TO GO. YOU JUST PUT THIS IN... >> 350 FOR ABOUT HALF AN HOUR. >> YEAH, AND IT'S DONE. >> ALL RIGHT. AND WE HAVE SOME HERE. THIS IS REALLY PRETTY WHEN YOU USE THE TWO COLORS OF PEPPERS, I THINK, TOO. >> YEAH, AND I DID TOP IT WITH A LITTLE BIT OF CHEESE. >> UH-HUH. >> YEAH. >> NOW, THERE'S 3 KINDS OF THE FREEKEH. THIS IS ROASTED GREEN WHEAT, AND THIS IS THE ROASTED GREEN WHEAT, BUT IT ALSO HAS ROSEMARY AND TAMARI? >> THIS ONE ACTUALLY HAS TAMARI SEASONING, AND THIS ONE, THE GREEN BAG, HAS ROSEMARY AND SAGE. >> OH, THIS ONE HAS ROSEMARY AND SAGE. >> SO THAT'S MORE SAVORY AND DELICIOUS. THAT'S GREAT WITH, LIKE, PORK OR CHICKEN, THAT KIND OF THING, AS A SIDE DISH OR WITH THOSE KIND OF INGREDIENTS. AND THIS ONE HAS A LITTLE ASIAN FLAVOR WITH A LITTLE ORGANIC SOY SAUCE IN IT, BUT IT'S GREAT--LIKE, IT'S GOOD COOKED UP AND USED, ACTUALLY, IN COLD SALADS WITH LOTS OF VEGETABLES. IT'S DELICIOUS. >> AND THEN THE ORIGINAL. >> YEAH, AND THEN THE ORIGINAL IS JUST PLAIN. YOU CAN HAVE THAT. YOU KNOW, IF YOU LOVE TO COOK AND SPICE STUFF, YOU CAN JUST USE THAT IN ANY KIND OF RECIPE. >> AND JUST EXPERIMENT WITH YOUR OWN THING. SO OK, WE HAVE THIS, AND THEN WE HAVE A CHILI RECIPE. WHICH TYPE DID YOU USE IN IT? >> I JUST USED THE PLAIN ONE. YOU CAN USE THE TAMARI, TOO, FOR THAT. IT'S DELICIOUS. BELIEVE IT OR NOT, EVEN THOUGH IT'S SOY SAUCE, IT'S ACTUALLY REALLY FLAVORFUL IN SORT OF MEXICAN RECIPES. AND FOR THE CHILI, YOU CAN DO THAT IN A CROCK POT. JUST DUMP EVERYTHING IN THERE. >> AND MAKE LARGE QUANTITIES. >> YEAH. AND YOU COULD JUST TAKE THE WHOLE BAG OF FREEKEH AND PUT IT IN 2 1/2 CUPS OF WATER, AND YOU CAN ADD SOME FIRE-ROASTED TOMATOES TO THAT OR SOME CRUSHED TOMATOES--A CAN OF THAT AND A CAN OR TWO OF BEANS, AND, AGAIN, YOU CAN USE SOME OF THE LEFTOVER CORN THAT YOU MIGHT HAVE FROM ANOTHER RECIPE AND JUST THROW THAT IN THERE AND LET THAT JUST SIMMER FOR A WHILE, AND SOME GARLIC, AND YOU'RE GOOD TO GO. >> AND IF YOU HAVE YOUR OWN FAVORITE CHILI RECIPE, THEN YOU CAN JUST ADD TO IT. >> ABSOLUTELY, AND SOMETIMES JUST FOR A LITTLE BIT MORE TANG, I ADD A LITTLE BIT OF TOMATO PASTE--YOU KNOW, KIND OF TASTE IT AS I GO. BUT REALLY YOU CAN DO NO WRONG WITH MEXICAN CHILI. >> AND YOU WERE GOING TO SHOW US ABOUT WORKING WITH AVOCADOES THAT MAYBE WE MIGHT NOT KNOW. >> OH, YES. AVOCADO IS A REALLY AWESOME--IF YOU SPICE THE CHILI THE WAY I LIKE TO, WITH A LOT OF CAYENNE PEPPER--WHICH IS DELICIOUS, AND IT BOOSTS YOUR METABOLISM, TOO, BY THE WAY--SOMETIMES YOU WANT TO CUT THE CHILI WITH SOME SOUR CREAM OR THAT KIND OF THING. WELL, FOR ME, I DON'T USE A LOT OF SOUR CREAM. I'LL USE A LITTLE BIT OF NONFAT YOGURT INSTEAD, AND IT'S GREAT. >> YOU JUST PUT A DOLLOP ON TOP. >> YEAH, JUST TO ADD A LITTLE CREAMINESS. AND THEN FOR AVOCADO, FOR THE TOPPING, I DON'T KNOW IF YOU'VE EVER DONE THIS, BUT YOU CAN CUT THE AVOCADO IN HALF, AND THEN YOU SORT OF SCORE IT LIKE THIS... AND MAKE A LITTLE GRID PATTERN, AND THEN YOU JUST SORT OF FLIP IT INSIDE-OUT LIKE THAT. >> NOPE. I'VE NEVER DONE IT THAT WAY. >> YEAH, AND THEN YOU CAN JUST SPOON IT OUT ON TOP. >> YOU CAN'T EVER HAVE TOO MUCH. >> AND THAT'S ALSO A NICE-- >> YEAH, AND IT'S NOT A HIGH SOURCE OF FAT. >> RIGHT. >> AND IT REALLY ADDS SOME GOOD FLAVOR. >> AND THEN RIGHT AS YOU'RE SERVING IT, YOU CAN PUT A LITTLE BIT OF LIME RIGHT ON TOP, AND I FOUND THESE, YOU KNOW--THAT THE COMPANIES ARE REALLY GETTING INTO THIS FIBER AND PROTEIN THING. THEY REALIZE THAT THE PEOPLE WANT IT, AND THEY'VE GOT ALL KINDS OF REALLY AWESOME FLATBREADS OUT THERE AND TORTILLAS. THIS ONE IS SOME KIND OF DELICIOUS BLACK BEAN WHOLE WHEAT TORTILLA. >> IT'S PERFECT FOR THE CHILI, ISN'T IT? >> ...ADD FOR THE VEGETARIANS. YEAH. >> AND I UNDERSTAND THAT THE FREEKEH ITSELF IS CERTIFIED ORGANIC. >> IT IS. IT COMES IN ALL-NATURAL AND ORGANIC, AND IT'S NON-GENETICALLY MODIFIED FOR EVERYONE WHO'S INTERESTED IN THAT, AND IT'S COOL. IT'S GROWN IN CALIFORNIA, ACTUALLY. YEAH. >> AND THIS WOULD BE A RECIPE FOR THE WHOLE FAMILY BECAUSE YOU COULD ALSO HAVE--IF SOMEBODY WANTED SOME MEAT ADDED TO IT, YOU COULD HAVE THAT AS A SIDE DISH... >> OH, YEAH. >> TO ADD TO IT. BUT THIS IS GREAT TO TALK ABOUT THE IMPORTANCE OF BEANS, WHICH ARE SUCH A GOOD SOURCE OF FIBER, TOO, AND THEY ALSO EXTEND A RECIPE A LOT. >> OH, ABSOLUTELY, ESPECIALLY IN THESE DAYS WHEN PEOPLE ARE TRYING TO REALLY GET MORE BANG FOR YOUR BUCK, THESE ARE VERY ECONOMICAL. YOU KNOW, IT'S ONLY ABOUT $2.00 OR $3.00 A SERVING, WHICH IS REALLY GOOD FOR FAMILIES. >> WELL, IT IS. THANK YOU SO MUCH, BONNE. >> THANK YOU. APPRECIATE IT. >> I HOPE YOU ENJOYED THE SHOW TODAY. NEXT TIME ON "CREATIVE LIVING," WE'LL LEARN HOW TO ARRANGE FLOWERS, PREPARE SALADS, AND TALK ABOUT HOW TO FIND YOUR OWN PASSION.
