Slow Cooker Mediterranean Chickpeas is the perfect blend of flavors with olives, roasted red peppers, fresh lemon, and plenty of spices to create a hearty, satisfying meatless dish.

Lately I have been really embracing Mediterranean flavors, especially things like olives and roasted red peppers. I love the richness and depth they add to any recipe, especially vegetarian recipes that sometimes can use a little something extra. This simple recipe brings together all of these flavors in a simple, slow cooker dish that couldn't be more comforting. Served over couscous, rice, polenta, or even pasta - it's a meal you will want to make again and again.
