Rinse the rice, put in a pot with 3 3/4 cups water and the salt, and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to low and cook, tightly covered, until done, about 40 minutes.


Cut the carrots diagonally, rolling a quarter turn each time you slice to make attractive, irregular shaped pieces—thus the roll cut.


Heat the oil in a wok or skillet. When hot, add the ginger, then the carrots. Stir-fry for several minutes, then add a few teaspoons soy sauce and stir-fry for 1 minute more. Pour in 1/2 cup or so of water, cover the pan, and cook until the carrots are tender, 5 or more minutes, depending on their size. Remove the lid, add the scallions, and cook until the liquid is reduced to a glaze. Taste a carrot and season with sea salt if needed.


Slice the tofu into 1/2-inch triangles or rectangles. Heat a large nonstick skillet. Add the tofu, sprinkle it with salt, and cook over medium-high heat until the water cooks out and the tofu starts to color nicely. Turn and cook on the second side until golden, about 10 minutes total. Add a little soy or ponzu sauce to the pan to glaze the tofu.


Reheat the carrots if necessary. Serve the rice, the carrots, and the tofu on the same plate and pass the peanut sauce.

Cooks' note:
The rice takes the longest, so start it first. Then go to the carrots, the sauce, and the tofu. Dinner will be done when the rice is. The peanut sauce is good on everything, so serve the rice, carrots, and tofu with the sauce on the side.

Brown rice is a whole grain rice. It has a mild, nutty flavor, and is chewier and more nutritious than white rice, but goes rancid more quickly because the bran and germ—which are removed to make white rice—contain fats that can spoil. The process that produces brown rice removes only the outermost layer, the hull, of the rice kernel and is the least damaging to its nutritional value. Brown ..
