Bottom of the fridge soup day 2

I said yesterday that it was a bit bitter and bland.
I added:
1 vegetable oxo cube
some garlic and parsley
a knob of butter
I dissolved the oxo cube in a pint of water and added some garlic flakes (a sprinkling) and some dried parsley (another sprinkling). I let this stand for 5 minutes or so to let them 'brew' together and then added them to the rest of the soup that I had bubbling on the hob.
It did the trick! The soup now has some depth and flavour and its a lot thinner and more soup-like than puree like.
Got to find out what's in vegetable oxo cubes that makes them so so necessary in my soup flavouring!
