Sadly, when you buy oregano from the store, it is often bland. It is unidimensional and you have to use quite a bit just to have any flavor.
This Greek Oregano from Collected Foods is the real deal. We preserve the essential oils in ours. When you bite into it, you taste the oregano, but intense. There are notes of basil, mint. Because we offer a larger leaf, it carries and keeps more of the oils. They are locked in and released when you are ready to use it. Feel free to powderize it yourself in a coffee grinder or food processor, but keeping it the way it is will give it so much more flavor.
Here are three quick yet flavorful ways to use it as soon as you get it. Mix some with olive oil and coat your vegetables in it. Remember your old roasted vegetables? You will smell the difference.
Do you love Greek salad? Oregano with red wine vinegar and some olive oil. It’s that easy to make the ideal dressing for your greek salad. And, for pasta? it can even be used with store-bought. Our oregano plus any old supermarket pasta is already dinner table ready.
Let’s talk about some classic Greek foods. Lots of people love souvlaki, which is a shish kabob. It’s actually very simple to make. Start by marinating pork chops or shoulder: wine, onions, peppercorns, and our Greek oregano. Put it in the fridge for a couple days so it marinates well. Take it out, skewer it, grill it. Once it is done on the grill, take it out and immediately throw it in lemon juice mixed with Greek oregano and a little pepper. That’s it. Serve it with tzatziki and that is one fantastic meal. It’s far better than at a restaurant, and the key is the Greek oregano.
Be sure to use oregano in other dishes besides Mediterranean! Think 'versatile' when you think about oregano. Use it in stews. Use it in soups. Use it in roasting meats. Oregano really belongs in almost every dish. It pulls all sorts of different flavor profiles together. It is a unique ingredient that has the latitude to fit into any dish you’re making.
