  3. Meanwhile place the raw peeled zucchini with the lemon juice in the food processor and pulse a few times. Add the cooked cauliflower and 1 tablespoon of water to the food processor (work in batches if necessary) and puree on high until smooth. Stop occasionally to push the contents to the bottom. If necessary use another tablespoon of water make a smooth puree but the less water the better. (Makes about 2 cups of puree. Leftovers can be kept in refrigerator for up to three days or frozen for up to three months.)

  5. Place tortillas between moist paper towels and microwave on high for 30 seconds.
