Finely chop the garlic (or use a garlic press). In a medium saucepan, melt the butter and a dash of olive oil over a medium heat. Add 1/2 the garlic and cook until fragrant, 1-2 minutes. Add the water (for the rice) and the salt to the pan and bring to the boil. Add the jasmine rice, stir, cover with a lid and reduce the heat to low. Cook for 12 minutes, then remove the pan from the heat and keep covered until the rice is tender and all the water is absorbed, 10-15 minutes. TIP: The rice will finish cooking in its own steam so don't peek!
While the rice is cooking, thinly slice the carrot (unpeeled) into half-moons. Cut the spring onion into 3cm pieces. Trim the snow peas. Finely grate the ginger. Gently crush the roasted peanuts (still in their packet) with a rolling pin or the bottom of a saucepan, or roughly chop them if you prefer. Drain the Peking marinated tofu sauce in a small bowl and set aside. Cut the tofu into 2cm cubes.
To the bowl with the tofu sauce, combine the remaining garlic, ginger, soy sauce, sweet chilli sauce, water (for the sauce) and 1/2 the sesame oil blend. Heat a medium frying pan over a medium-high heat. Add the mixed sesame seeds and toast, tossing, until golden, 3-4 minutes. Transfer to a second small bowl.
Return the frying pan to a medium-high heat with a drizzle of olive oil. Add the tofu and cook, tossing occasionally, until browned and warmed through, 4-5 minutes. Transfer to a plate.
Wipe out the frying pan and return to a medium-high with the remaining sesame oil blend and a drizzle of olive oil. When the oil is hot, add the carrot and spring onion and cook until just softened, 1-2 minutes. Add the snow peas and the ginger-soy mixture and cook until tender, 2-3 minutes. Remove from the heat, add the tofu and stir to coat.
Divide the garlic rice between bowls and top with the ginger-soy tofu and veggies. Sprinkle with the crushed peanuts and toasted sesame seeds.
