Sesame-Rolled Tofu with Ponzu Dressing

Sesame-Rolled Tofu with Ponzu Dressing

“This is a great dish for Vegans and Vegetarians too, but as an avid meat eater, I love eating this too. The Ponzu dressing isn’t totally authentic (one needs some rather rarified Japanese Citrus for that) but it’s a great one to use for salads, fish, chicken etc.
