Braise tofu
  • Pat tofu dry with paper towels. Cut tofu in half parallel to the cutting board. (NOTE: You will have two square tofu steaks per block.) Using a fork, poke tofu all over. Season with 1/4 tsp (1/2 tsp) garlic salt and pepper. 
  • Heat a medium (large) pot over medium-high heat. 
  • When hot, add 1/2 tbsp (1 tbsp) oil, then tofu. Sear until golden-brown, 1-2 min per side
  • Meanwhile, combine soy sauce mirin blend, brown sugar, ginger-garlic paste and 2 tbsp (3 tbsp) water in a bowl. 
  • Add soy sauce mixture and 1 tbsp (2 tbsp) butter, then bring to a simmer. Cover and reduce to medium-low. Simmer until tofu is tender, 8-10 min.
Cook rice
  • Meanwhile, add 1 cup (2 cups) water, 1 tbsp (2 tbsp) butter and 1/2 tsp (1 tsp) garlic salt to another medium pot. Cover and bring to a boil over high heat.
  • Meanwhile, using a strainer, rinse rice until water runs clear. 
  • Add rice to the boiling water, then reduce heat to medium-low. Cover and cook until rice is tender and liquid is absorbed, 12-14 min. (NOTE: Reduce heat to low if water is boiling over.)
  • Remove from heat. Set aside, still covered.
  • Meanwhile, trim snow peas, then cut in half. 
  • Cut bok choy into 1-inch pieces. Using a strainer, rinse bok choy leaves to wash away any hidden dirt!
  • Toss snow peas, bok choy, remaining garlic salt and 1/2 tbsp (1 tbsp) oil in a medium bowl. Season with salt and pepper.
  • Layer two 24x12-inch pieces of foil.
  • Arrange veggie mixture on one side of the foil.
  • Fold foil in half over veggie mixture and pinch edges to seal pouch. (NOTE: For 4 ppl, make 2 pouches, using 2 sheets of foil per pouch.) 
Gather ingredients for grilling
  • Add foil pouch veggies, pot with tofu and braising liquid, a clean plate for cooked tofu, a silicone brush and any grilling tools on a platter. 
  • Head out to grill!
Grill veggies and tofu
  • Place foil pouch veggies on one side of the grill. Close lid and grill until tender, 6-8 min. 
  • Meanwhile, add tofu to other side of the grill. Leave braising liquid behind in pot. Close lid and cook until grill marks form, 2-3 min per side.
  • When tofu is almost done,  brush one side with some glaze from pot, then flip. Grill for 30 sec, then repeat with other side.
  • Transfer tofu to the clean plate.    
Finish and serve
  • Thinly slice green onions. 
  • Fluff rice with a fork, then stir in half the green onions. 
  • Carefully open foil pouch. 
  • Thinly slice tofu, if desired. 
  • Divide rice between plates. Top with veggies and tofu. 
  • Drizzle any remaining sauce over top, then sprinkle remaining green onions over top.
