Cooking pot size for 2

What is an ideal size for cooking pots for 2 people that will be cooking not only packaged freeze dried food, but also making meals in the pot (think like rice/beans, ramen dishes with dehydrated veggies, and other meals of the like). Will be cooking on a canister stove (pocket Rocket) I don’t anticipate cooking water for hot drinks other then maybe 1 cup of coffee for breakfast meals.

Im trying to balance the capacity needs with volume of gear needed to get the job done.

What? A 2 pound hatchet isn’t a part of your base weight?
I would say that with 1.6 L you are quite comfortable to cook anything for 2 maybe 3 people
