It's (usually) more complicated than that.

What’s your comfort food?
Is “anything edible” an acceptable answer? Because eating–and in particular, very varied eating–is basically how I keep the “functional” part of “functional depressive.”
Anything is an acceptable answer far as I’m concerned.
I’ve had way too many days where I asked myself why I felt so bad and the answer was ‘because you haven’t eaten anything today / in eight hours’.
That’s never happened to me. I’ve never in my life forgotten to eat. I usually want food long before I have a chance to get hungry.
I don’t think I’ve every forgotten to eat. I have forgotten to plan to effectively obtain food. Like, twice a week?
I like things that are spicy and tasty. Like Thai curries and ALL THE THINGS from New Mexico made with green chile. They are great if you have a cold, too. Which I do. Bleh.
Also pie. Especially my grandmother’s pies, and especially blueberry pie…but being grandmotherless for a couple of years now, I have yet to develop a replacement sources of blueberry pie. And no one makes apple pie like she did either.
And raspberry jam. Gaaaaaahhh.
Pastina is my all time favorite comfort food, but it’s hard to find here. Walmart started carrying it for a while, and then stopped.
When I was in Argentina, there was a chicken dish I really liked that helped soothe my travel tummy. It was just a chicken cutlet breaded and sautéed and served with mashed potatoes, but it had some subtle seasoning. I had something similar last night called Chicken Paillard”, but it had a sauce.
