Assunto:  Verdura X Legume
 
Mensagem:  "verduras" is "greens" in english. Southerners love their greens, especially, for example a "mess of mustard greens" (verduras cozinhado).

In english, 'legume' has a narrow sense in the world of cooking, referring usually to various types of peas and beans, after being shelled. Fresh green beans are considered a vegetable, regardless of technically being a legume.

in horticulture, a legume is any cultivated plant in the Fabacea family.
