And maybe interesting to know, that we have two similar and very different 🙂 dishes. Kooreklops and Sibulaklops (onion ). Sibulaklops consists of a lot of stewed and fried onions to achieve special flavour and consistency.

Sweet and sour braised turnips can be served as a side dish with some meat or main dish.
I do not know. Does it is international that children just do not like some food? Like blue cheese and olives? ( or children who grow up in the Mediterranean are fond of olives??)
When I was a child I hated braised and boiled carrots and turnips. And, blue cheese and olives, of course 🙂
Now I am grown up and I can say that there is nothing better than braised turnips.

This is very simple and delicious everyday vegetable soup. And most important! This soup takes only 15 minutes.

A wonderful recipe you can serve as a sweet or savoury dish.
Did you know? Interesting fact: In Estonia, cottage cheese began to be produced in order to meet the cheese production plan set by Moscow to the USSR. The National Planning Committee of the USSR almost doubled the cheese production of the Estonian SSR for the five-year plan, So, this is the reason why Estonia began to produce cottage cheese which was reported as cheese in the reports 🙂
