As said, this is only a version of numerous, different kinds of vegetable stews made in the oven. Smetana, goat cheese and honey bring their own special flavor to the food and moreover, this dish is really filling.
You can do this with or without bacon if you don’t like it or you don’t eat meat at all. And if just the bacon is the problem, you can use f.ex. milled meat, chicken or fish as a substitute.
