South Africa’s smallest heritage bean is environmentally friendly and deeply delicious. This water-wise, lovely legume has been grown since time immemorial in the Sekhukhuneland district of Limpopo province but it has no botanical name and is seldom seen in commercial context.
Traditionally mixed with maize meal into semothwane or tossed into peanut-laden tshidzimba, diponkisana is increasingly finding favour with modern chefs within a restaurant repertoire. The nutty, buttery, sweet-savoury tastes and smooth, creamy textures lend themselves to lime and cumin-rich bean purées. They are fabulously fragrant served in a curry and super soothing in soups or stews. Why not add a few to a roasted vegetable and feta salad?
