Oregano | Bountiful
Also known as wild marjoram and Origanum vulgare (meaning “joy of the mountain” in Greek), oregano is a fragrant culinary and medicinal herb that has been used for thousands of years. Belonging to the mint family, or Lamiaceae, oregano is known for its earthy flavor that makes it a great addition to a wide variety of dishes, from light salads to hefty Italian sauces.
Some of the most common uses of oregano include tomato-centric recipes, like pizza and pasta sauce, as well as olive oil-based dishes. Oregano is commonly combined with olive oil to create flavorful oregano oil, Italian vinaigrettes, and marinades for lamb, chicken, and beef dishes. Other ingredients that pair well with oregano include garlic, basil, onion, and thyme.
Fresh oregano leaves are an excellent garnish to add in moderation at the end of cooking.
