Glamorous recluse nibbles a Kiwi legume (8)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

garbanzo

I'm a little stuck... Click here to teach me more about this clue!

'legume' is the definition.
(garbanzo is a kind of legume)

'glamorous recluse nibbles a kiwi' is the wordplay.
I cannot really understand how this works, but
'a' could be 'an' and 'an' is found within the answer.
This may be the basis of clue (or it may be nonsense).

Can you help me to learn more?

(Another definition for garbanzo that I've seen is "Word from Spanish meaning chickpea".)

I've seen this clue in Sydney Morning Herald.
