Place the onion and mushrooms in a large mixing bowl and toss with the Nama Shoyu until mixed well. Set aside for at least 15 to 20 minutes to marinate and soften.
Add to the marinade the carrots, garlic, agave, and sesame oil. Mix well. Add the noodles and spinach, and toss to mix well.
We are combining several raw miso soup recipes to get the one we liked best.
