OreganoAmong other herbs I also grow oregano in my garden, it is fantastic to see how big gets the plant in the spring summer, to die in the winter and then to see it regrow in the spring again, mother nature is just incredible. This is one of the reasons I like to grow herbs, vegetables and fruits in my garden, to enjoy and learn how things work. 

Oregano is a Mediterranean herb, originally from Greece that is wonderful to use in the kitchen and has great benefits for your health containing a large amount of vitamins and proteins, in a 15 gr. portion dried oregano there is:

  • Sodium: 3 mg
  • Potassium: 240 mg

  • Fosfor: 30 mg
  • Iron: 8 mg
  • Fibers: 2.4 g
  • Proteins: 1.7 g
  • Carbohydrates: 7.5 g

All this is already a good reason to use oregano in your meals, but of course is also the taste that will give to your plates that is great. You can use in meats, pizzas, pastas, soups, frittatas. If you click here you can see my recipes that includes oregano.
