   6      cloves        garlic -- minced (2 Tbs.)
     3/4  teaspoon      salt
   2      teaspoons     ground cumin
   1      tablespoon    chopped fresh oregano
                        (or 1 tsp. dried)

     1/2  cup           fresh lime juice

Place the garlic in a mortar and pestle with the salt and mash to a smooth
paste (or mash in a shallow bowl with a fork).  Work in the cumin, oregano,
pepper, and lime juice.  Add a pound of vegetables.  Marinate for at least
six hours, stirring occasionally. Broil or grill until done, basting
occasionally with the leftover marinade.   Serves 5.
