To make pesto, put cilantro and garlic in a food processor and process
until finely chopped. With machine on, gradually add olive oil. Season
and blend in cheese.

Slice enough onion to equal about 1/2 cup. Sauté with margarine in a
small cast-iron skillet over medium-high heat. Cook past translucent
stage until browned, about six to eight minutes.

Prepare about 2 cups of vegetables -- the combination depends on personal
taste. Cook all vegetables except mushrooms in lemon juice and 2
tablespoons of pesto over medium to medium-high heat. When almost at
al-dente stage, add sliced mushrooms. Continue cooking for about one
minute. (The remaining pesto can be refrigerated for future use.)

Place vegetable mixture over sizzling onions, then spoon vegetable-onion
mixture into center of warmed tortillas. Top with condiments, to taste,
then roll up tortillas.

This recipe yields 1 serving. Three tortillas make one very generous
portion.
