Let the aroma of this savory soup waft through your home while you get ready for the holidays. "I only have to slice some bread and prepare a salad to have dinner ready," writes Paula Zsiray of Logan Utah. "For a thicker soup, mash half of the garbanzo beans before adding them to the slow cooker."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Feb. 28, 2012

This soup was great! It smelled wonderful simmering all day, and was easy to put together. I mashed half of the garbanzo beans as suggested and my whole family loved it. I served it with dinner rolls. It was a very tasty, filling soup.
