also called “dried vegetables,” belong to the Fabaceae family, including trees, shrubs, or grasses = whose fruits grow inside pods.
Beans can be broken down into three broad categories: lentils (green, red, black, etc.), beans (white, red, black, fava, etc.) and dried peas (chickpeas, split peas, etc.). In short, there is something to suit all tastes!
