Turnip in a salad bowl

Many housewives cannot imagine how tasty and healthy turnip is, especially if it is cooked deliciously. In the article I will consider a special cooking method, which involves the use of special pots. First, the vegetable is boiled, then the inner pulp is removed with a spoon.

The thickness of the walls of the pot is about one and a half centimeters. Upon completion of the preliminary stage, the pots are filled with minced meat. I like to experiment with the filling - I use sweet cereal, mushroom and meat components. I take any meat, but I prefer mushrooms oyster mushrooms.
