Pigeon Pea

A small, round off-white vegetable (legume) grown in a pod similar to a pea or bean. They have a delicious nutty flavor and can be used as an alternative to the lima bean. They are grown in warmer climates such as the southern U.S., the Caribbean, Africa, and the Middle East. They are eaten as a fresh green pea, picked when the pod is green or allowed to mature into a dried bean with a brown pod, and processed for ease of use and storage.
