  1. First, prepare the rice. Sprinkle the cooked brown rice with rice vinegar and toss with a fork. Set aside while you're preparing the rest of the ingredients.
  2. In a small bowl, combine all ingredients for the ponzu sauce and whisk well. Taste and adjust seasonings if desired.
  3. Place the shredded lacinato kale into a small bowl and spoon a bit of the ponzu dressing over top. Use clean hands to massage the dressing into the kale, and then set aside while you're prepping the rest of the ingredients.
  4. Place the cubed tofu into the bowl with the remaining ponzu dressing and let stand for 5 minutes, or as long as overnight.
  5. To assemble, first place the rice into two serving bowls. Arrange the marinated kale and tofu over top, followed by the remaining ingredients. Garnish with strops of nori.
  6. To serve, drizzle a bit of extra ponzu sauce over top, and toss to mix well. Enjoy!

Recipe Notes

-Prep time assumes the brown rice is already cooked.
-Ponzu dressing and marinated kale and tofu can be made up to a day in advance.
-If you're making this for packed lunches, leave the avocado off until ready to serve. Everything else can get packed into a container up to 2 days ahead of time.
