Agree with E, the last clause needs to begin with a conjunction and 'with' fits perfectly

I would go with E.

The speaker says largely vegetarian and goes on to give examples. With "and", meat also beacomes one of the examples of vegetarian dish.
Try removing the examples and read the line.

........Largely vegetarian and meat rarely.

and Option E

........Largely vegetarian with meat rarely

"with" is necessary here to show the proper contradiction between meat and other vegetables and grains.

(E)

(A) and meat rarely
(B) and meat was rare
(C) with meat as rare
(D) meat a rarity
(E) with meat as a rarity

a) n + ad = nonsense
b) that meat was rare means it is not 'well done steak'
c) looks like meat's condition
d) n + n = ??
