If you have ready to go bone broth and a decent amount of leftovers this dish is the perfect boxing day fast food.
My favourite thing over Christmas is to take all the leftovers and get creative. When you've cooked a bird be it a Turkey, Goose, Duck or Chicken saving the bones is a must. But actually as we often say, any time you make a roast (especially if the meat is organic) and you have the time, try making your own bone broth we have a recipe you can follow here.
Needless to say if it's Christmas then pop on the broth overnight so you'll have a wonder warming broth on boxing day.
If you don't have the inclination, or enough bones or broth to feed everyone then our broth is perfect for this.

*If you really want to get authentic ramen add a spoonful of fat to the top of the noodles and watch it melt with the next step.
Pour the boiling broth into the bowl and over the ingredients. This should warm everything through nicely without overcooking everything.
