    From the Test Kitchen

    For this dish, you'll coat pieces of tofu in togarashi before roasting them in the oven. You'll toss the roasted tofu in a sweet and spicy combination of gochujang, date syrup, and black bean-chile sauce, then serve it over a hearty bed of sushi rice topped with sweet corn, cabbage, and crunchy roasted peanuts.

    In a small pot, combine the rice, a big pinch of salt, and 3/4 cup of water. Heat to boiling on high. Once boiling, reduce the heat to low. Cover and cook, without stirring, 15 to 17 minutes, or until the water has been absorbed and the rice is tender. Turn off the heat and fluff with a fork. Stir in the sesame oil. Cover to keep warm.
