Pour 600ml boiling water into a pan, add the miso, ginger and garlic, then allow to gently simmer for 3-4 minutes.
Add the soba noodles and vegetables to the pan, and cook for a further 3-4 minutes, until just tender. Stir through the soy sauce and ladle into warm bowls. Top with coriander leaves to serve.
