Simple Spinach Tofu with Turmeric Rice

This dish is so simple, but it’s so good! And that rice, wow! Husband and son didn’t care for the spinach in their bowl, but I thought it was really good. Next time I will play with seasonings for the tofu (I found it a little bland). I ate some of this the next day for lunch and it was even better!
