Bolani is a vegan flat-bread from Afghanistan, baked or fried with a vegetable filling. It has a thin crust and can be stuffed with a variety of ingredients, such as potatoes, spinach, lentils, pumpkin, or leeks.

Bolani originates strictly from Afghanistan. It is vegan and very low-calorie. It is usually served as an appetizer, side-dish, or main dish.

One of ABL’s cheap thrill’s is going to COSTCO to check out food samples.

Today, ABL headed over and discovered Bolani. A Concord based Afghan food company.

IMG_2881The guy giving out the samples was hilarious and extremely generous.  I picked up a few items because of the taste and his enthusiasm.

It really makes a difference if your product is good and when you have people enthusiastic about it.

Per the company rep who was there, it is currently available at Costco and Wholefoods.

Try it.  It’s good.  The guy said you’d have a better chance of the Bolani tasting better if you heat it on the top of the hood of your car rather than the microwave.  Plus it’s always great to support local and the small business guy!
