Ingredients

    4 cup water
    1 (3.5 oz) bag boil in bag brown rice
    1 tbsp peanut oil (I used canola)
    1 tbsp sugar
    2 tbsp rice vinegar
    2 tbsp low sodium soy sauce
    1 tsp bottled minced ginger (I used fresh ginger)
    1 tsp of Sriracha sauce
    1 pound of extra firm tofu (365 Whole Foods organic brand is nice)
    1 tsp salt, divided
    0.25 tsp black pepper
    0.75 shredded carrot

Directions

Bring 4 cups water to a boil in a 2-quart saucepan. Add bag of rice, submerging bag completely in water. Boil 10 minutes. Carefully remove bag from pan, leaving boiling water in pan. Add asparagus to pan; cook 1 minute. Drain.
While rice cooks, heat peanut oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Combine sugar, vinegar, soy sauce, ginger, and chili sauce in a small bowl. Sprinkle tofu with 1/2 teaspoon salt and pepper. Add tofu to pan; cook 3 minutes on each side or until browned. Add soy sauce mixture; cook 20 seconds, stirring constantly. Remove from heat. Combine rice, asparagus, 1/2 teaspoon salt, carrot. Serve tofu over rice.
