Stir sauce ingredients together in a sauce pot, simmer sauce over low heat, stirring occasionally.

Cook brown rice according to package directions.

Drain and press tofu so excess liquid is expelled. Cut tofu into 1 inch by 1 inch cubes and dust lightly with corn starch. Heat 1/2 inch of vegetable oil in a frying pan. Fry tofu under golden brown, turning as necessary to cook all sides. Remove tofu and drain on a plate.

Add veggies to steamer basket of rice cooker or cook in a steamer basket over a pot of boiling water.
