Oregano is a flexible herb, used in many dishes and especially tomato-based dishes such as chilli, pizza and spaghetti bolognaise. It may be used fresh or dried, and has a more concentrated flavor in its dried form. Oregano is a popular herb and is normally used in Italian dishes. However, I don’t limit it to only Italian dishes. I add oregano leaves in my soups, broths, salads, even in cooking any dishes. I keep a jar of dried oregano leaves that is very flexible and use it as I could cilantro. It adds a mild fragrance to my meals while I enjoy all its incredible health benefits.
