Description

Oregano is an aggressive plant that likes to spread and a bush of oregano can grow quite large if you allow it.

Oregano is a well-loved cooking herb. It is used in Italian cooking and known by most children as “the pizza herb.” It also makes an appearance in many Mexican and Spanish dishes and can be used to add flavor to almost any food.

  • Oregano is particularly useful in any tomato-based dish.
  • It is perfect for seasoning pasta dishes and most foods that contain olive oil.
  • Pair oregano with basilgarliconion, or thyme.
  • Whole sprigs of oregano and rosemary can be placed in steamer water for seafood along with a few large leaves of basil. It gives shrimp a lovely herbal flavor.
  • You can even add oregano to canned soups for a little extra flavor during lunch or on one of those lazy dinner nights.

Fresh sprigs of oregano can be cut from the plant to prep for any meal. Rinse the sprig, pat it dry, then strip the leaves from the stem. Chop the leaves finely before adding them to the dish.
