INSTRUCTIONS

Whisk the green ginger relish well to combine.

Cook the carrots
Peel the thinly slice the carrots. Add the sliced carrots to the boiling water and cook until fork tender, about 3 to 4 minutes. Drain the carrots, return to the saucepan off of the heat, and toss with 1 tbsp of the green ginger relish and a pinch of salt and pepper.

Prepare the tofu
Drain the tofu and cut into 6 slices, or steaks, and pat dry with paper towels. Add the cornstarch to a large bowl with 3 tbsp water and whisk well. Toss the tofu in the cornstarch mixture to evenly coat. Add the panko breadcrumbs to a plate and season with salt and pepper. Press the tofu steaks into the breadcrumbs to coat them fully.

Serve
Cut a small hole in the brown rice and microwave on high until hot, 1 minute. Divide the brown rice between large plates and top with the crispy tofu. Spoon over some of the green ginger relish and serve with carrots. Enjoy!
