    From the Test Kitchen

    For this hearty dish, you'll top a base of fried brown rice and vegetables with bites of tofu—glazed in the pan with a savory-sweet mix of maple syrup, soy sauce, and yuzu kosho (a beloved Japanese condiment made from fermented chiles, salt, and the juice and zest from tart, citrusy yuzu).

    tips & techniques
    Drain & press the tofu
    1 Drain & press the tofu

    Drain the tofu. 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.

    Cook the rice
    2 Cook the rice

    Fill a separate, medium pot 3/4 of the way up with salted water; cover and heat to boiling on high. Add the rice to the pot of boiling water and cook, uncovered, 17 to 19 minutes, or until tender. Turn off the heat. Drain thoroughly.

    Meanwhile, wash and dry the fresh produce. Peel the carrots and thinly slice on an angle. Cut off and discard the root ends of the bok choy; roughly chop. Crack the egg into a bowl; season with salt and pepper. Beat until smooth. Roughly chop the peanuts. In a separate bowl, combine the maple syrup, yuzu kosho, soy sauce, and 2 tablespoons of water.

    4 Cook & glaze the tofu

    Transfer the pressed tofu to a cutting board; medium dice. In a large pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat 2 teaspoons of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the diced tofu; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, 5 to 6 minutes, or until lightly browned. Add the glaze (carefully, as the liquid may splatter). Cook, stirring occasionally, 1 to 2 minutes, or until the tofu is coated. Transfer to a bowl; cover with foil to keep warm. Rinse and wipe out the pan.

    Cook the vegetables & egg
    5 Cook the vegetables & egg

    In the same pan, heat a drizzle of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the sliced carrots; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, 4 to 5 minutes, or until lightly browned. Add the sautéed aromatics and chopped bok choy; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, 2 to 3 minutes, or until softened. Using a spoon, move the vegetables one side of the pan. Add a drizzle of olive oil to the other side, then add the beaten egg. Cook, constantly stirring the egg, 30 seconds to 1 minute, or until cooked through. Stir the vegetables and egg to combine.
