If you like a vegetarian base for soup such as veggie bouillon cubes...
For a fresh, unique flavor, try ...
Soak dried kelp in water for an hour or so.
Remove kelp and use flavored water as soup base.
You can also leave the kelp in the soup, if so,
cut it into bite size pieces.
Add miso, tofu, veggies, seafood, etc. Yummy!
