Cook the rice
Peel and mince the ginger. Mince the garlic. In a medium pot, heat a drizzle of oil on medium-high. Add ½ the ginger and ½ the garlic. Cook, stirring frequently, 30 sec. to 1 min., until fragrant. Add the rice, 1 ½ cups water (double for 4 portions) and a big pinch of salt; bring to a boil. Reduce the heat, cover and let simmer, 14 to 16 min., until the rice is tender and the water has been absorbed. Remove from the heat and let sit, covered, for 5 min. Fluff the cooked rice with a fork and set aside in a warm spot.

Cook the tofu
While the rice cooks, pat the tofu dry and medium-dice; toss with ⅓ of the spice blend and S&P. In a large pan, heat a drizzle of oil on medium-high. Add the tofu to the pan and cook, 1 to 2 minutes on all sides, until heated through and beginning to brown. Transfer to a plate and set aside in a warm spot. Wipe out and reserve the pan.
