Chef's suggestion:

Hungarians serve this meat-free stew with paprika as a side dish to meat. Pork chops and Lecso are, so to speak, Hungarian classics. Lecso with spicy sausage and smoked bacon is usually served with fresh bread. It can also be served with groats or potatoes. It is exactly the same as we serve bigos in Poland.
