Ulliance culinary specialist, Chef Paul Penney, joined us in the FOX 2 Cooking School with a recipe high in nutrients sure to warm up the entire family. His Indonesian Pilaf is low calorie and packed with Vitamins A & C, as well as the calcium and iron that helps keep us going strong throughout the year

Those looking to try out the recipe shouldn't be intimated by the ingredient list. It can all be cooked in just a pot or two, and is easily kicked up a notch with extra protein by adding shrimp, chicken, pork, beef or tofu.
