    How to Cook dishes from Native American tradition


    Native American The indigenous people of the Americans have developed a variety of recipes, and exploited many sources of food which were later adopted when Europeans and other arrived in the New World (these foods can be food for example in American cuisine, Canadian cuisine, Mexican cuisine, Argentine cuisine, Brazlian cuisine, Peruvian cuisine).

    Of course, it would be wrong to consider native American cuisine as completely homogenous. Different culinary traditions and recipes developed in each part of the Americas, in part driven by different cultures, lifestyles, and of course the availability of different foods. As a result, there is a great variety of dishes that have been created by native American people.

    Some popular native American recipes and dishes include:
    • Akutaq - This is an Eskimo dish, made from caribou or moose fat with berries, fish, and seal oil. It is whipped together with snow, and is sometimes known as "Eskimo Ice Cream".

    • Bannock (also known as "fry bread") - Deep-fried flat dough. It is leavened with baking powder or yeast, and after cooking may be topped with beans, ground beef or cheese.

    • Corn bread - Bread made from cornmeal (maize).

    • Guacamole - A dip created by the indigenous people of Mesoamerica, and subsquently adopted into Mexican cuisine. It is made from mashed avocado with tomatos and salt. Onions, lime juice and spices are often added as well.

      Guacamole

    • Guinea pig - Guinea pigs have been domesticated and eaten by the Inca people of South America for atleast 4,000 years. There are many ways that guinea pigs may be cooked and prepared, including broiled (asado), fried (chactado or frito), roasted (al horno), as a soup (sopa or locro de cuy), as well as in casseroles.

    • Jerk - This style of cooking originated with the Taíno people of Jamaica. Meat is rubbed with a mix of fiery spices, and then slowly cooked over a smokey fire (hence the origin of the word "jerky"). Jerk is also the origin of the Jamaican cuisine's jerk recipes - which are prepared using a similar marinade, but are generally cooked on a charcoal grill.

    • Llapingacho - This dish from the Ecuadorian highlands consists of mashed potato with cheese. It is usually served with fried eggs and sausage.

    • Pachamanca - Meat (chicken, guinea pig, lamb, mutton or pork) marinated in spices, with vegetables (cassava, corn, lima beans, potatoes, sweet potatoes, etc.) baked with hot stones in an earthen oven (huatia). The dish originates from the Peruvian Andes, and is considered one of Peruvian cuisine's most famous dishes.

    • Pemmican - Dried berries, dried meat, and rendered fat, mashed together.

    • Pozole - A traditional soup from Mexico. It contains hominy (treated cornmeal), meat (usually pork), chili, beans and various seasonings. Other vegetables may be used for garnish, and there are many variations on the basic recipe.

    • Succotash - Corn, tomatoes and lima beans cooked in butter.

      Succotash

    • Tamales - Steamed corn dough. It may be filled with meat or cheese, and sliced chillis. It is usually cooked while wrapped in a corn husk or plantain leaves.

    • Tortillas - Thin unleavened bread made from maize or wheat flour. Tortillas were originally created by the indigenous people of Mesoamerica, and are today is a well-known food in Mexican cuisine.

      Tortilla

    • Tacos - A stuffed tortilla filled with cheese, meat or vegetables. Like tortillas, tacos were first created by the indigenous people of Mesoamerica, and have subsequently been adopted into Mexican cuisine.
