Food, Indirectly complaining about colonialism in modern foodways 

One thing I hate about looking for quinoa/amaranth/etc recipes (really, anything with a non-"western standard" base ingredient) is that the only results seem to be ridiculous superfood mashups. "Let's cram as many 'healthy' things in this bowl as possible, without any regard for flavor and texture balance!"

And of course, this is completely related to the erasure of indigenous foodways as a result of colonialism.

Food, Indirectly complaining about colonialism in modern foodways 

Being able to muddle through a search in spanish is a little more fruitful, finding a great resource like this: fao.org/3/i3525s/i3525s.pdf

(And yes, I know that the quinoa trade is ridiculously exploitative to folks in South America, but amaranth is less so, and something I can grow easily in my climate, and has roughly the same culinary purpose, so that's why I'm looking for quinoa recipes)
