YEP, heard my name through the vastness of cyberspace.
I have made many soup stocks like this out of exactly what Doe suggested.
I take all types of veggies when they are in season, and I slice and dehydrate, then pop into zip lock bags, or freeze, depending on what it is and how much I have after dehydrating.
Then I just take out several types of veggies and either grind in my Vita Mix or Bamix dry container to a powder, then add warmish water.
My main ingredients in the powder are tomotoes, cabbage, red pepper, onion, garlic, sea salt, cayenne(to make it taste warmer) and black pepper.
you can then add smallish chunks of any other veggies dehydrated or fresh that you like.
If I'm adding fresh, I may warm it on the stove to finger warm, if I'm adding dehydrated, I may just let it sit for 15 minutes or so to re-hydrate the veggies, then warm to finger warm.
Some veggies that are super in soups are fresh
the most wonderful thing about raw food preparation, is that you can make it and taste it while you are making it, and so you will always have it the way you want it.

Before I had a dehydrator I would dry herbs by hanging in a bunch from the ceiling or the walls in my kitchen or I would prop them in the tie backs of my curtains, still do that on occasion, they look pretty to me.
I used to set out butcher paper, and lay herbs on it, in the summer when it was warm.
lay them on the deck, actually have a couple of big bunches of mustard seeds hanging in the garage right now, they are huge, so they are too big for our dehydrator, abotu 5 feet tall stems, with mustard pods on them.
I would hang them over the wood stove, or above the oven.
I used to use my oven (don't anymore) but I have a cabinet above the oven, where I would keep pots and pan, it gets really warm up there, so I would put metal racks in there, stacked and put food on that like a natural dehydrator, with a little fan, and use, that.
Again, I have a dehydrator now, so don't have to do these things, but sometimes it is pretty or fun to hang stuff in the house, plus everything smells so nice.
But veggies, hummmm, If you cut them very thin, and layed them out, it might work, just make sure you have air movement, that is waht dehydrates more than just the heat.
I like the idea of a pillow case, or shirt, T shirt would be great, and just lay them on a deck or some such thing.
But to keep them in the cupboard they need to be 100% dry, to keep in the fridge, you can dry to where you like it, I dry to very dry, so I can make a powder that I take with me on trips and such, so I can have warmish soups, or sauces that are tasty instead of salad dressing or salt etc.

Hi, dragonfist70 :)
Do you ever make fresh stock?
I just make it when I need it by using water and fresh vegetables, and herbs. I throw them into a processor and pulse. Let it sit for a while and strain. This is a good use for scraps -- I guess, sort of like cooked stocks, when you save them and, when you have enough, throw them into a pot.
I like corn (or the spent cobs), dried mushrooms; tomatoes; herbs like sage, thyme, bay leaves, peppercorns, parsley, cilantro; carrots; parsnips; celery; onions, of course; garlic. Mmmm, sounds like soup time! :)
