Astragulus
 
Astragulus is a member of the pea family and if you munch on the leaves flowers or pods this is evident. I've read many different things about Astragulus, some saying it is poisonous and some saying it is medicinal (which often mean the same thing). It is not strictly speaking an edible plant. If you eat a few leaves it will not kill you nor make you sick, at least it did not for me nor the person with me trying it. The roots are the part used most for medicinal uses generally as a tea. It stimulates the immune system and helps create white blood cells.
This plant is one I do not know a whole lot about. I have seen it growing in the deserts near my home and have eaten it. My research shows some great benefits as a medicinal plant and so it is one i would suggest researching.
