    From the Test Kitchen

    To top a bed of hearty brown rice (cooked with ginger, garlic, and scallions), you'll bake tofu until slightly crispy, then toss it in a vibrant glaze of spicy gochujang, savory soy sauce, and sweet honey. Sautéed broccoli and carrots, plus a garnish of roasted cashews, lend delightful crunch to each bite.

    tips & techniques
    Press the tofu & make the glaze
    1 Press the tofu & make the glaze

    Remove the honey from the refrigerator to bring to room temperature. Place an oven rack in the center of the oven; preheat to 450°F. Drain the tofu, then place on a paper towel-lined plate. Place several layers of paper towels on top, then place a heavy-bottomed pot (or pan) on top of the paper towels. Set aside to release the excess liquid at least 10 minutes. In a large bowl, whisk together the soy sauce, honey (kneading the packet before opening), 1 teaspoon of warm water, and as much of the gochujang as you'd like, depending on how spicy you'd like the dish to be. Season with salt and pepper.

    Cook the rice
    2 Cook the rice

    In a small pot, heat the sautéed aromatics on medium-high until hot. Add the rice. Cook, stirring frequently, 1 to 2 minutes, or until lightly toasted. Add a big pinch of salt and 1 cup of water (carefully, as the liquid may splatter). Heat to boiling on high. Once boiling, reduce the heat to low. Cover and cook, without stirring, 23 to 25 minutes, or until the water has been absorbed and the rice is tender. Turn off the heat and fluff with a fork.

    3 Bake & glaze the tofu

    Meanwhile, line a sheet pan with foil. Using your hands, break the pressed tofu into bite-sized pieces. Transfer to the sheet pan; drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Carefully toss to coat (the pieces may crumble). Bake 24 to 26 minutes, or until slightly crispy. Carefully transfer to the bowl of glaze; toss to coat.

    Meanwhile, wash and dry the fresh produce. Peel the carrots and thinly slice on an angle. Cut off and discard the bottom 1/2 inch of the broccoli stem; cut the broccoli into small florets. Roughly chop the cashews.

    Cook the vegetables & serve your dish
    5 Cook the vegetables & serve your dish

    In a large pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat a drizzle of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the sliced carrots and broccoli florets in an even layer. Cook, without stirring, 3 to 4 minutes, or until lightly browned. Add 2 tablespoons of water (carefully, as the liquid may splatter); season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring frequently, 3 to 4 minutes, or until the vegetables are softened. Turn off the heat. Add the ponzu sauce; stir to coat. Serve the cooked rice topped with the cooked vegetables and glazed tofu. Garnish with the chopped cashews and furikake. Enjoy!
