Too right. I've occasionally used Brie or Camembert to make a nice melted cheese toastie: Cut a few slices into a flat bread (eg, mountain bread, or wrap), add some dried cranberries and pine nuts (or whatever else suits you), then fold the wrap closed and dry-toast it on your fry-pan or pot lid on the stove until the cheese melts. Delicious!
(Also works well with just cheddar and salami.)
In this one, it looks like I added rosemary and pistachios:

...and South African droewors (dried sausage) is available from Coles Supermarket Bondi Junction. I guess a lot of South African expats live near Bondi Junction. I've been taking droewors on lots of trips this winter and it's a great food. If it were a little less tough it would be even better.

They are really light and pretty tasty. About $4 for 65g.
Part of the Japanese special buys (but made in Australia).

I tried the mixed vegetable flavour, but there is also chicken, lamb and other fake meat flavours. The instructions say soak for 10 minutes in hot water, but they hydrate fine in room temperature water.
I mention there, because the packet ways 90 grams, but I would say you would only need 20 or 30 grams for a meal when you add them to couscous. So instead of a packet of couscous (90 grams) and a sachet of beans (100 grams) you can use the soy meat instead, which saves you some grams.
I suspect the fake meat flavours are nicer than the vegetable flavours, but any of these could be great for vegetarians/vegans on the trail.
