Oregano is not an herb but rather a name used to define nearly 40 plants available across the world that respond to the same flavor profile. Rich in essential oils, pungent and peppery, this is what we call all-purpose oregano.
Oregano is an essential seasoning for all things Mediterranean from pizzas to grilled meat and veggies. A wise old trick says that a pinch of oregano in your legumes can facilitate digestion. We also love mixing it with coarse salt, black pepper and chili flakes.
