Cut the tofu along its side into half inch thick slices. Then cut the tofu slices diagonally to make triangles. Place tofu on a cutting board and cover with a paper towel. Gently press down with your hand to drain excess water from tofu.
Whisk peanut butter, water, soy sauce, and hot sauce in a bowl. Refrigerate before serving.
Heat 1½ tbs oil in a frying pan over medium-high heat. Test by frying one piece of tofu; it should sizzle. Fry a few tofu triangles at a time so they are not crowded. Turn from one side to the other occasionally, until golden brown on both sides. Set the fried tofu aside.
Heat ½ tbs oil in the frying pan over high heat. Fry sliced mushroom and leafy greens until soft. Set aside.
Heat the 1 tbs oil in the frying pan over medium heat. Stir-fry kimchi for 1 minute. Add rice and stir-fry for another minute. Remove from heat, stir in mushroom and leafy greens.
Serve the fried rice with fried tofu and garnish with green onion. Drizzle peanut sauce on tofu for extra flavor.
