Vegetarian Bopis

Vegetarian Bopis
Vegetarian Bopis. It’s been some time since the last time I cooked a vegetarian dish. Today I got a change to cook a special one. Incidentally one of today’s special at Woolworths Supermarket here in Australia is a vegetable soup pack which includes turnip, radish, carrot, potato, white onion and celery stalk which are all in the list of ingredients for a vegetarian bopis.
