The soybean (U.S.) or soya bean (UK) (Glycine max) is a species of legume native to East Asia, widely grown for its edible bean which has numerous uses. Like all beans, soybean is a pulse, hence a vegetable. The FAO classifies it as an oilseed because of its 20% oil content, but the protein content is even higher, so that classification looks wrong.

In any case, soybean is unique among beans for this double usage, oil and protein.
They are a vegetable that looks like fat pea pods.
