Dried oregano has an excellent flavour and aroma, and works very well with cilantro and cumin. Garlic, onion, thyme, basil, parsley and olive oil are other common seasoning partners for dried oregano. Toast dried oregano leaves lightly in a pan and dd them to your favourite chili or taco recipe. Drizzle olive oil over a hunk of feta cheese that’s been topped with oregano leaves and serve with olives. Oregano can become overpowering and bitter if too much is used on foods with a mild flavour. So, add little by little. Oregano goes well in just about any tomato dish. It also compliments vegetables with dominant flavours such as chilli, paghetti sauce, pizza, zucchini, broccoli and cauliflower. When using dried oregano, crush it in the palm of your hand before adding to the food. This helps release the essential oils and revive flavour.
