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.

I loved Ms. Nancy’s cooking class so much.! I have been in this cooking class for two years and I would love to sign up for another one. I tried a lot of new foods like winter squash, cardamom, Brussels sprouts and kale. My favorite salad was the kiwi, carrot, radish salad.
Not only did we cook and eat, we also did labs about food. We used rulers to measure the size of plants. We also explored stone fruits and their ripe season. Now in my house we have window boxes and I am growing cherry tomatoes and basil.
I learned that we can use a lot of different tools to cook, not just our hands and senses. We used safety knives, potato peelers and a carrot sharpener (I wonder if you could sharpen a pencil with it?) !!!
Because of this class I can help papi make dinner and I will try any new food at least once to see if I like it. Thank you, Ms. Nancy for making cooking fun and interesting and helping me be excited about food.
