The term groundnut may refer to any of the legumes in the Faboideae subfamily, including:

  • Peanuts (Arachis hypogaea)
  • Bambara groundnuts (Vigna subterranea)
  • Hausa groundnuts (Macrotyloma geocarpum)

All of these legumes have slightly different flavor profiles, but they can generally be used interchangeably in cooking.
