Fenugreek ( Trigonella foenum-graecum ) is a member of the huge plant family Fabaceae ( Pea Family ). I have been using the seeds it in Indian cooking for years but never really knew what the actual plant looked like. Well here it is ! According to Wikipedia, this plant has an ethnobotanical history dating back to 4000 BC. In more modern times the culinary trend is to grow microgreens from Fenugreek seeds.
