avocado matzah

April 30, 2017 • Nancy Wolfson-Moche

Ever notice how most classic comfort food is whitish?  Avocado is the new comfort food, in green.  It is creamy like mashed potatoes and rich like mac ‘n cheese. Fatty and fibrous, avocado is a savory fruit. Here, its creamy texture is complemented by the bitter crunch of radish and the sweet tang of spring onion, supported by a thin piece of handmade spelt matzah. Comfort food for breakfast? Yes, please!

INgredients to serve one


one ripe avocado

2 medium breakfast radishes

one spring onion

one half piece of shemura (handmade) spelt matzah

one quarter of a lime






Trim the leaves and wash the radishes by immersing them in water.

Slice it in half lengthwise, then rest the long flat underside on the cutting board; slice them into thin crescents. Set aside.

Slice the onion into thin half-moons.

Slice the avocado lengthwise. Peel and pit. Slice each half into thin half-moons pieces.

Arrange the avocado on top of the matzah.Add the onion pieces and then the radish slices.




Squeeze fresh lime juice on top.








Pair with a cup of green tea.

M has thoroughly enjoyed your class and has become a much more adventurous eater as a result.  She's open to trying so many new things.  My husband and I have enjoyed watching her use the skills she's learned in your class to take charge of the kitchen at home and make food for us.  M has also enjoyed working with the seniors and feels as though she has lots of surrogate grandparents.  What a lovely class!   Thank you.
