Bring the vegetable stock and yeast extract to the boil. Then remove from the heat and add the dried shiitake mushrooms, leaving them to soak for 30 minutes. Once rehydrated, remove the mushrooms from the stock and keep to one side.
In a frying pan over a high heat, add the ginger, onion, cinnamon stick, star anise, coriander seeds and cloves and fry until the onion starts to char and the spices toast and become fragrant.
