I have been making this recipe for years. It's our favorite soup. Sometimes I substitute quick cooking barley for the potatoes. It's delicious both ways!

This soup is fantastic! Even my veggie-phobic fiance enjoyed it! I had a bag of fresh Idaho potatoes on hand so I peeled and diced three small ones into hash brown sized cubes; they cooked nicely during the 8 hours in the crock pot. I also used fresh baby carrots cut into small pieces and let them cook for the whole 8 hours. They cooked very well, too! This recipe is a keeper!

I cut the recipe in half as since our household now consists of only two. Made more than 6 servings as we had roast chicken sandwiches also. It was great. My husband is sweetly tolerant of some of the recipes I try. However, "This soup is a keeper" is a great recommendation from him - me too!

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.
