Spoil dad this Father's Day with a tasty and delicious vegan dinner, that will make him feel like a king.
Izinkobe-zikabhontshisi is a traditional Zulu bean and corn stew, that is typically served with a fresh, tangy and spicy salad or salsa.
My Father loves Izinkobe-zikabhontshisi. So, I have decided to make his day with this hearty, warm and comforting stew. I enjoy serving this stew with a spicy salsa that pairs perfectly together.
To complete this Father's Day dinner I have decided to make a warm and fruity dessert. This yummy dessert can be served with warm custard or cooling ice-cream. See my next post for the full recipe.

Cooking time: 45 minutes
1 cup dry sugar beans/ red speckled beans 4 cups/ 1000ml water
1t/ 5ml oil ¼ t/ 1.25ml cayenne pepper 1 vegetable or chicken stock cube ½ t/ 2.5ml salt
Black pepper to taste 1 cup/ 250ml young white corn
3 tomatoes (finely chopped) ½ red onion (finely chopped) Juice of ½ a lemon 1 green chili (optional, finely chopped) Salt and pepper to taste ¼ cup/ 60ml fresh coriander (roughly chopped)
1. Place beans on a tray carefully pick out any stones and unpleasant looking beans. Rinse the bean with cold water and place in a medium pot.
2. Add water, oil, cayenne pepper, stock cube and salt in the pot. Cook the beans over a medium heat for 20 minutes until beans are slightly tender, but not cooked through. ·
3. Remove the corn from the cob and add corn to the beans and cook for a further 10 minutes until beans are completely tender.
4. To prepare the salsa, mix all the ingredients in small bowl.
5. Serve the stew in a bowl and top with a few spoons of salsa.
For a less spicy salsa remove the seeds of the chili, as they determine the spiciness of the salsa.
