If you're going to the Scottish ighlands in August, eat Citronella sauce with everything.

A lot of the local shops in the remote places are well stocked with veg and the basics, but I would recommend a stove as otherwise it might be fairly long distances between hot vegan eats. Cous cous is good one as it's very quick to cook, 1KG doesn't take up a lot of space and is quite high in protein so you won't have to bother with lentils, vegeburger mixes are great for protein. If you can carry a few basic spices and garlic don't bother with pre-flavoured packet rice/cous cous as the portions are too small. After a hard day on the bike, my "treat" is to fry up vegeburger mix in splats add a tin of baked beans and a tin of spuds, a few spices, it tastes wonderful in the mountain air.

Yes, I would also recommend a stove if touring for much more than a couple of days. Otherwise, you'll probably get fed up with just eating bread. Also with a stove, you can take dried food, which is lighter weight/less bulky.

+1 for cous-cous. Also instant noodles and instant mashed potatoes are good for being lightweight and quick cooking.
I've never bothered with lentils when camping, I think they'd take too long to cook. I often take dried soya mince, you can get stuff that cooks in about 5 minutes, so easy to mix up in a tomato sauce etc. Or sausage mix / burger mix. I think the Granose sausage mix is now vegan, or there are a few other similar brands.
