A few days ago, I planted myself a little herb garden. I'm really looking forward to having fresh herbs on hand. I've only ever used dried oregano in the past but when I saw a fresh plant I decided to include it in my herb patch.
The thing is, I've never actually used it fresh before. Do you have advice on how to use it and any favourite recipes that uses this traditionally Italian herb?
Oregano is a great herb to go on pizza or sprinkled over pasta. You can also use it to flavour tomato and oil based sauces, or simply sprinkle it over melted cheese on toast or use it over roast potatoes instead of rosemary.
Definitely good on pizza and pasta!
Just had a thought, as I did it with the billions of parsley I grew, how about oregano pesto! All you really need is the oregano, some nuts (pine nuts, walnuts, cashews anything!), olive oil, Parmesan cheese and garlic blended together!
