Just got a bunch of them from hubby's business trip in Indonesia. They're also called bogor peanuts, but don't taste like peanuts at all.

Other than this wikipedia article, I can't find much nutritional information about it.

Interesting; never heard of them before. So...how do they taste?

I think I have eaten them before. A Nigerian friend made groundnut (not peanut groundnut, she said it was the "other kind of groundnut") stew with pilau. DELICIOUS. Tasted a little bit like boiled peanuts but with a more mushroomy, earthy taste.

As a legume... not Paleo. But screw that, eat up. Obviously you're not going to be making them a staple!

From the link you posted: "Bambara groundnut represents the third most important grain legume in semi-arid Africa."

From a quick Google search: http://www.fitclick.com/how_many_calories_in_Bambara_Groundnut_Raw?fd=5501 and http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/8933200
