Abstract:

Vegetables farm an important portion of human diet and are more important for the vegetarian population. Family Leguminosae is one of the highly diverse families of vegetables. In addition, vegetables belonging to this family are exceptionally rich in proteins, vitamins, minerals, and nutraceuticals. However, the vegetables belonging to this group were never exploited to the immense value they warrant. In this review, we highlight the usefulness of cultivating three underexploited vegetable legumes such as cluster bean, velvet bean and winged bean by discussing their botanical characters and health-related benefits.
