Although fresh oregano adds appealing taste, the herb is among a handful that work well dried. Its spicier flavor is balanced nicely by cilantro, and it’s a natural partner for cumin. Oregano goes well with just about any tomato dish. It also compliments vegetables with dominant flavors such as chili, spaghetti sauce, pizza, zucchini, broccoli, cauliflower. The great flavors of garlic, onion, thyme, basil, parsley, and olive oil are common complimentary seasonings to oregano.
