Cook the pasta as package directs, about 8 to 9 minutes. Do not over cook as the pasta tends to fall apart easily. Heat the oil in a skillet and sauté the garlic for 1 minute. Add the mushrooms, carrots and 1/2 tablespoon shoyu soy sauce. Sauté for 2 minutes. Place the noodles on top of the vegetables. Set the kale on top of the noodles, add the water and remaining shoyu. Cook about 3 to 5 minutes until the kale is tender, but still bright green, and the soba is warm. Toss gently to mix and sprinkle the scallions on top for garnish.
