Mexican food is wonderful for vegetarians--there is such a wonderful variety.
Flour tortillas (use whole what if available) 1 zucchini sliced lengthwise 1/2 large eggplant sliced thin 1 large red bell pepper cut into thick julienne 1 large yellow squash sliced lengthwise 1 red onion sliced thick 1/2 cup lime/olive oil dressing 3 T. chopped cilantro 3 T. vegetable oil for frying Salsa, store bought is ok Salt and pepper
Make a little dressing with lime juice and oil, salt and pepper; marinate the veggies for about two hours or longer. Heat the oil in a large skillet, add the vegetables and saute until soft, starting with the onions first, then add the rest. Steam the tortillas for a few minutes until soft, fill with the vegetables, pour a little salsa, add the cilantro and roll up. Serve with a side of salsa and sour cream or plain yogurt.
