So, what is legume?

Legumes are a versatile and nutrient-rich food ingredient that belong to the family of plants known as Fabaceae. They are commonly consumed in various forms, such as whole, canned, or dried. Legumes are an excellent source of plant-based protein, fiber, and essential nutrients, including folate, iron, and potassium. They also have a low glycemic index, making them an ideal food for people managing their blood sugar levels. Some popular legumes include lentils, chickpeas, kidney beans, and black beans, which can be used to make delicious soups, stews, salads, and dips. Incorporating legumes into your diet is a great way to improve your overall health and support sustainable agriculture.
