Cook the rice according to the instructions on the packet. Drain, leave to cool and then fluff up with a fork.
Make the marinated tofu: in a bowl, mix the tamari or soy sauce, vinegar or lime juice, oil, garlic and ginger. Cut the tofu into cubes and add to the bowl. Stir gently until coated all over. Leave to marinate for 15 minutes.
Heat the sesame oil in a frying pan set over a medium to high heat. Add the diced chilli and stir-fry for 1 minute. Add the greens and stir-fry for 2 minutes until they start to wilt. Stir in the soy sauce.
Divide the brown rice, stir-fried greens, edamame beans, avocado and marinated tofu between 2 bowls or lunchboxes. Sprinkle with the spring onions and sesame seeds. Serve with lime wedges for squeezing and hot sauce, if liked.
