Vegetable Fajitas

Recipe by: Susan Voisin

* 1 onion, cut into thin wedges
* 2 cloves garlic, minced
* 1/4 tsp. whole cumin seeds
* 1/2 green pepper, sliced thin
* 1/2 red pepper, sliced thin
* 1 medium or 2 small yellow squashes, halved lengthwise and sliced 1/4 inch thick
* 2 medium or 3 small zucchini, halved lengthwise and sliced 1/4 in thick
* cayenne pepper, to taste
* salt, optional, to taste
* 4 flour tortillas (fat-free or whole wheat, preferred)

Spray a non-stick skillet or wok briefly with non-stick spray, and place it over high heat. Allow the pan to heat, then add the onion and sauté until it starts to turn clear, but not brown, about 2 minutes. Add the garlic and cumin seeds, and stir for about 30 seconds. Then add the peppers, squash, and zucchini, stir-frying until all vegetables are tender but not soggy, 6-10 minutes. Add cayenne pepper and salt, if desired, stir again, and serve wrapped in a flour tortilla. Or, may be served alone, as a side dish.
