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!
