  1. In a small bowl, combine the miso, tomato paste, chile-garlic paste and a pinch of salt; add the tofu and toss to coat.

  2. Heat ½ tablespoon of the oil in a 10-inch cast-iron skillet. Crack the eggs into the skillet and cook over high heat for 1 to 2 minutes, until the whites are lightly browned around the edges and the yolks are barely set.

  3. Transfer the eggs to a plate.

  4. Add the remaining 1 tablespoon of oil to the skillet and heat until shimmering. Add the snow peas, carrot and scallion, season with salt and stir-fry over high heat for 2 to 3 minutes, until crisp-tender. Add the bean sprouts and cook for 30 seconds.

  6. Add the rice and water to the skillet along with a generous pinch of salt and bring to a boil. Cover with foil and a tight-fitting lid and simmer over low heat for about 15 minutes, until tender.

  7. Spoon the tofu and sauce over the rice, cover and cook for 5 minutes longer. Stir in the vegetables and top with the eggs and sesame seeds. Mix everything together.

  8. Serve with seasoned nori and chile-garlic paste, and enjoy!
