For the sauce: In a small bowl, mix together the red pepper paste, garlic, sesame seeds, agave, and sesame oil. Add water and stir until smooth.
To make the "Couch Bowl": Layer the steamed rice evenly in 4 bowls. Drizzle with the red pepper paste sauce. Top with sauteed tofu and a handful spinach leaves. Sprinkle with shredded carrots and a spoonful of sliced scallions. Drizzle with a little more sauce, and a sprinkle of toasted sesame seeds. Serve the extra sauce on the side.
