Ingredients

    For the stir fry

    1.5 cup Brown Rice, long grain
    6 1tsp Canola Oil
    14 oz Mori-Nu, Tofu, silken, extra firm
    2 cup Asparagus, fresh
    2 cup, strips or slices Carrots, raw
    3 large Scallions, raw

    For The Sauce

    3 clove Garlic
    6 tsp Ginger Root
    2 tbsp Honey
    8 tbsp Kikkoman Low Sodium Soy Sauce
    .25 cup (8 fl oz) Water, tap
    4 tbsp Vinegar - Natural Rice Vinegar (Nakano)
    .25 cup Canola Oil

Directions

1. Sauce: Puree all the sauce ingredients together in a food processor until smooth. Set aside.

2. Tofu: Cook the rice or farro according to package directions. Cut the tofu into slices and press with a paper towel to remove excess moisture. Wait a few minutes and press again - there's lotsa water in there! Cut the tofu slices into small cubes. Heat the oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. When the oil is shiny, add the tofu and about cup of the stir fry sauce (watch out because the sauce and oil will spatter a tiny bit - have a cover ready or just skip the sauce at this point). Pan-fry the tofu until golden brown. Remove from the pan and drain on paper towel lined plates.
3. Veggies: Return the pan to the heat and add the asparagus with cup stir fry sauce. When the asparagus is bright green and tender crisp, add the carrots and toss together. Arrange the veggies and tofu over the cooked rice or farro, and cover with more sauce to taste. Sprinkle with the green onions.

NOTES
To make this gluten free, make sure your soy sauce and your tofu are both certified gluten free brands. To make this vegan, use an alternative sweetener in place of honey.

You can find tofu in the produce section of most grocery stores. I sprinkled mine with the tiniest amount of chili powder right in the frying pan to bump up the golden color.

I like to peel the carrots into long strips instead of grating.
