That is only possible with cloud recordings. Just disable all the video layout options, while keeping Record an audio only file enabled.
Local recordings will always create a video and audio file. There is currently no way to disable one or the other for local recordings.
Hope that helps and please make sure to mark the solution as accepted if this information is what you needed.
Those settings are available in the web portal.

I just tested this out and the "record an audio only file" option does not turn off video recording. It creates another file that is audio-only, in ADDITION to the video file.
I wish there were a way to tell it not to save video files. That would save a ton of space and we only need to keep the audio.
This feature is very important to have. In many US states, it is illegal to video record without express written permission from every participant, and the audio recording is only needed. Zoom needs to catch up with Privacy laws and rights and allow users more control over the types of recordings.
