Toss it onto a dry heated skillet to toast. I feel like this adds some depth to the flavor.

Wow, easypeasy.

If you like this soup, a recommendation is to toast a big batch of the powder and store it in a container, so when the craving hits, you can just spoon some into a bowl and add boiling water and sugar.

It also scales well for any events. :P
