Which are creamier, butter beans or cream peas?

Well, technically, they're both legumes, but how are you planning to treat or to serve them? Therein lies the difference.

I have never tried or heard of cream peas, but butter beans are one of my favorite beans. They are definitely richer in flavor and texture than the average bean, when cooked for the proper amount of time.

Psst: Lentils keep just as long as dried beans but cook much faster
