I ate this meal five days in a row.
If there was more, I would have eaten it for six.
Stacy’s recent blog post on take-out recommendations inspired me to visit Bolé Ethiopian Cuisine located near the Super Target in Midway area of St. Paul, MN.
After reading her post I wanted to order the Super Veggie Sampler, too.
Currently, the Super Veggie Sampler costs about $23 before tax + tip. Bolé‘s website lets you order and pay online for curbside pick-up or delivery.
You will need both arms to carry it into your home. The whole tray must have weighed at least four pounds.
I found a layer of injera loaded with a variety of vegetarian dishes -scoops of spicy, red berbere lentils, milder bean and lentil dishes, kale, green beans cooked in a sweet and savory tomato sauce, and cabbage all carefully tucked inside.
More layers of pillowy injera lay neatly folded on top – soft enough to cradle the Christ child himself on.
Injera’s tangy flavor reminds me of sourdough, which I love so much. I alternated between eating everything with a spoon and using pieces of injera to scoop bites into my mouth.
All together the dishes packed a lot of flavor hitting our favorite sweet, savory, spicy and gentle notes.
Samplers are my favorite way to go. Bole also offers combos that feature meat dishes and even a half veggie-half meat sampler for a few dollars more.
