2 T ghee, avocado or olive oil
1 t dried veggie or Italian seasoning

Melt 1 T ghee in a stovetop pan. Add two big handfuls of slaw into the pan and the seasoning, saute for 1 minute.
Add quinoa and 2 cups of water to pan. Bring to a boil, cover and reduce heat to a low simmer. At 10 minutes turn off the heat and let sit.
In a small skillet, heat the remaining tablespoon of ghee. Add the almonds/pepitas, saute until golden brown. Sprinkle with a pinch of salt.
Stir in another two cups of the slaw to the quinoa. Spoon quinoa onto a platter.
Top with dried fruit, toasted almonds/pepitas, goat cheese and flaky salt. Squeeze the orange over the top.
