Meat eater here. I love veggies, but have to have meat.

As I age, I have less and less desire for meat. The rising prices have something to do with it. I rarely buy it anymore. I buy some fish, when they have something fresh. Meat just doesn't appeal much. Certainly beef and chicken don't. Consequently, I've learned to make some very deeply flavored vegetable stock that makes all the difference in soups, rice, quinoa, etc. I find that, for vegetable only things, umami is awfully important, and I keep miso, kelp and bonito flakes to deepen flavors. And fish sauce. The Romans knew what they were about with the garums.
