What size dutch oven is appropriate for 2 people?

I'm looking to invest in a dutch oven, but I am having trouble deciding on the right size. I'm eyeing a 3.5 qt one, but is that too small?

I'm a vegetarian, so no big roasts going it unless the bf wants to cook something for himself. Planning to mostly use it for breads, stews, veggies, etc.

I appreciate the help!
