Oregano is another ingredient that is traditionally found in many Italian dishes to add flavour, usually accompanying something like basil in a dish like spaghetti bolognaise. But that’s not where the versatility of oregano begins and ends: There are plenty more things you can do with it. If you dry it, then you can add dried oregano to almost any stew or soup that you can think of.
If you add it to anything fresh, then you are getting the maximum amount of healthy vitamins from the plant, and you’re also getting a great general boost to your metabolism and your heart. Don’t forget that oregano is also something that you can grow in your own herb garden; just don’t confuse it with ornamental oregano, which isn’t meant to be eaten at all – and you likely won’t enjoy the taste. If you don’t have the space to grow it, then just add oregano to your weekly shopping list instead.
