One day a while back I was looking for some good recipes for my udon noodles, and certainly something that is vegetarian....and I ran across this page that gave me a chance to use what I had in my pantry to fulfill my quest.
I made my dashi using shiitake mushrooms and kombu (edible kelp)- which rendered a rather strong broth, hence I avoided adding the mushrooms themselves to the soup- just kept it plain with tofu, broccoli and some scallions! My mother found the taste rather odd (it takes a bit of training your buds if oriental flavours are a stranger to you!), but the rest of us just gulped it!
