When you are running short on time, make dashi (Japanese soup stock) using the convenient dashi packet. It produces much more flavorful soup stock than one made with dashi powder.
In a medium saucepan, add water and dashi packet.
You can keep the dashi in the refrigerator for up to 3-4 days. I don't recommend to freeze dashi made with dashi packet.
