    For the Miso Soup:
    1. 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.
    2. In a separate pot, cook the soba noodles according to the directions on the package (about 8 minutes in boiling water).
    3. Heat the dashi over medium heat and add the garlic, kale, mushrooms, ginger, and tofu. Let cook until kale begins to soften but before it gets too wilted, about 5-10 minutes.
    4. Separate the soba noodles into bowls for serving. Pour the miso soup over the noodles. Garnish with green onion and option to garnish with gomashio.
