I thought about saying "put some meat in it"... but what you want is umami (or savory taste, which is one of the five basic tastes. It has been described as savory and is characteristic of broths and cooked meats.) It can be got from mushrooms, tomato paste, anchovies, seaweed, soy sauce, miso, aged cheeses and Asian fish sauce.
