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.

Icing on the Cake: Testimonials

I’m very impressed by all the elements you are able to pack into the lesson without it seeming at all overwhelming: the review, the actual cooking skills, the creativity of coming up with their own dishes, the chance to present their creations, the opportunity to learn about and share thoughts on something else (in last week’s case, the feelings represented in the book), the execution of their  jobs, the responsibility for one’s station/implements and the overall following of directions…..all without losing the fun quotient. No wonder the kids love coming!  You’ve really created something special so kudos to you!
