I added a marinade inspired by chef René Ortiz to this tofu combo!

Put balsamic vinegar and soy sauce together in a big bowl. Chop the tofu up into whatever size you want. Add tofu to bowl of balsamic vinegar and soy sauce. Leave it there to marinate for at least 1 hour.
Start the brown rice cooking; get it to the simmer stage.
Start the spinach and broccoli cooking, however you wish; I steam them.
Mince garlic; grate ginger.
When tofu has been marinated: heat oil in a non-stick frying pan or pot Add ginger and garlic and stirfry them until beginning to brown.
Drain tofu, reserving marinade.
Add tofu to frying-pan and cook for around 5–7 minutes.
Add the reserved marinade to the frying pan.
Hopefully your rice, spinach, and broccoli are cooked now; add them to the frying pan.
Let simmer until marinade is reduced.
