Slow Cooker Garbanzo Bean Soup with Garlic, Sumac, Olive Oil, and Lemon is a lovely first-course soup that’s loaded with Mediterranean flavors!
A few years ago I fell in love with a lemony-flavored Mediterranean seasoning called Sumac, and it’s a generous drizzle of olive oil and the sprinkling of Sumac that makes this Garbanzo Bean Soup with Garlic, Sumac, Olive Oil, and Lemon from Kalyn’s Kitchen so special. This is a soup I’ve made and enjoyed so many times and I’m hoping to entice you to try it if you’re also a fan of these middle eastern flavors!

What is this recipe a favorite for me?
This is a lovely first course soup with all the flavors that make so many people like hummus, and garbanzos are a worldwide vegetarian food, making this perfect as a main dish meatless soup as well if you switch out the chicken broth for vegetable stock. Sumac (affiliate link) is a slightly lemony-flavored ingredient that can be purchased at Middle Eastern or Mediterranean markets, or ordered online, and it’s an ingredient I absolutely love!
