1 Mix soy sauce, vinegar and sugar together. Add tofu and toss to coat. Marinate for 30 minutes or more. (If marinating longer keep in fridge.)
2 Cook rice following packet directions. Meanwhile, sprinkle cornflour over a plate. Remove tofu from marinade, reserving marinade, and roll in cornflour to coat evenly. Spray a non-stick pan with oil and heat. Cook tofu in 2 batches, spraying with a little more oil as necessary, until lightly golden and crisp. Keep warm.
3 Fill a medium-sized pan with water and add the reserved marinade and bring to the boil. Add vegetables and ginger. Return to the boil and cook vegetables for about 3-4 minutes until just tender.
4 Divide rice among bowls. Top with vegetables and tofu.
Drizzle with a little chilli oil and serve with spring onion tassels.
