Italian Garbanzo Beans (Slow Cooker)

Since the weather turned a bit chillier, it seems like I am seeing more requests for slow cooker recipes. Yesterday I made these Garbanzo beans in my 2-quart crockpot and was really happy with them. I contemplated putting them as a recipe in an upcoming cookbook. However, I think you will enjoy these now. My new cookbook coming out has a lot of slow cooker recipes perfect for the 2-quart size.

This Italian inspired dish is perfect for meatless Mondays or as a healthy side with your pasta night. I had half a cup serving last night, and it was perfect.
