Oregano

About

Oregano is an important culinary herb used for the flavour of its leaves, which can actually be more flavoursome when dried than fresh. It has an aromatic, warm and slightly bitter taste. Good quality oregano may be almost strong enough to numb the tongue, but the cultivars adapted to colder climates often have a lesser flavour. Oregano has a characteristic flavour associated with Italian cuisine.

Uses

In its most traditional way, oregano is added to pizza and pasta sauces to provide an authentic Italian flavour. These Walnut & Black Bean Meatballs are a plant-based take on the classic Italian meatball, providing a warming and nourishing meal for the whole household. Dried oregano can be added to soups, stews and casseroles, as well as mashed potato and bean dishes for extra flavour. Use oregano as a flavour enhancer in nut cheeses and hummus, such as this Herbaceous Hummus and these Nut Cheese Varieties. Flavour your patties and falafel balls with oregano, similar to these Quinoa-Chickpea Burger Patties.
