  1. Add rice, coconut milk, vegetable broth, and salt to an Instant Pot. Close the lid and set it to ‘Rice’. Cook on high pressure for 8minutes. Keep warm for 5-8 minutes before releasing steam. Fluff up the rice with a fork.
  2. Cut tofu into three slabs. Wrap in paper towels, press between two plates, and release excess water for about 15 minutes. Cut slabs into cubes. Add cornstarch to a plate and coat each evenly with the cornstarch.
  3. Add avocado oil to a skillet over medium heat. Add the tofu and cook until browned on each side. Remove from heat, drain on paper towels, and season with salt.
  4. In a small bowl, whisk together liquid aminos, sriracha, orange juice, avocado oil, sesame oil, coconut sugar, garlic, ginger, sesame seeds. Add to a skillet on low heat and bring to a simmer. Add cornstarch and water mixture to the skillet and cook until sauce is thickened, about 1-2 minutes more.
  5. Add the cashews and cauliflower to the skillet & cook for 2 minutes. Sir in the tofu.
  6. Serve over coconut rice and garnish with mint.
