Yes! I Am Not a Vegetable!!!

I am not a fruit or vegetable!!!

I … am … a Human Bean!!!

No!

Actually, I’m an Obscene … Legume … Bean!

David Redpath:

I presume a legume
needs cookin’
before consumin’ 
Or am I just nuts?

Yes, they should be cooked! Some of the methods for cooking legumes include: Stove-top – put legumes in a pot and cover them with at least 2 inches of water. Bring to a boil and remove any foam that forms. Reduce heat to a bare simmer and cook until tender (the cooking time will vary depending on the legume). There is often a lot of confusion with the difference between beans and legumes. Some people think they are two entirely different things. Others believe “beans” and “legumes” are entirely interchangeable. I want to help settle the confusion between these two similar terms so you can learn to eat and cook with both for healthy diet.

Legumes are plants that bear fruit that grow in pods. Beans are the seed from different variety of plants, although typically the whole plant is referred to as beans. This is much to much about beans and legumes?

That’s me schooled. Now is a banana a fruit or a herb, as Donavan keeps telling me to me to smoke them!

A banana is an edible fruit – botanically a berry – produced by several kinds of large herbaceous flowering plants in the genus Musa. In some countries, bananas used for cooking may be called “plantains”, distinguishing them from dessert bananas. As for Banana Republics? They are countries ruled by fruits!

A fruit case, or a basket case … like Iraq and Lybia?

Yes indeed: fruity basket cases!
