While the dashi is still hot, reserve about 1 cup and mix with the miso in a bowl until miso is smooth consistency, free of any lumps.

In a separate pot, cook the soba noodles according to the directions on the package (about 8 minutes in boiling water).

Heat the dashi over medium heat and add the garlic, kale, mushrooms, 

ginger, and tofu. Let cook about 5-10 minutes.

Separate the soba noodles into bowls for serving. Pour the miso soup over the noodles. Garnish with green onion and option to garnish.
