A plastic packet filled with 7 paper sachets of konbu dashi (seaweed soup stock). 1 sachet will make enough stock for around 3 people depending on the desired strength. Great for vegetarians, this soup stock contains no meat, just seaweed. Use with miso paste to make miso soup, or with soy sauce and red pepper to make chige hot pot. Can also be used in soup bases for noodle dishes. Highly versatile and important in Japanese cooking.

Dashi is a hugely versatile ingredient that is the basis for many dishes such as noodle soup or mixed with miso paste for miso soup. Traditionally made from katsuobushi bonito flakes and konbu kelp strained together, this instant variety is much quick and easier to prepare.

Good vegetarian dashi, excellent for soup, recommended
I use this stock as a base for miso ramen by dissolving it in water. I would recommend it to anyone who wants to make their own vegetarian ramen. No problems with this product, decent quality.
