My friend was talking about them and I was embarrassed as I didn't know what they are! Can someone help me out?

Peas and beans, I think peanuts are too.
Clover, alfalfa and soybeans are legumes.

leguminous plants have a deal with various fungus types to pull nitrogen out of the air... and put it underground where the plants can get some benefit... this makes legumes invaluable soil builders when grown for the purpose of tilling them back under as "green manure".
