Oregano is an excellent source of antioxidants including carvacrol, thymol, and rosmarinic acid.

Carvacrol is known for its antibacterial and antioxidant properties; it is also studied for its antiinflammatory and cancer-preventive activity as well as its role in heart health.

This month we will explore the potential of this wonderful herb to enhance human health while at the same time tasting a sampling of delicious recipes that make use of it.

The recipe below was sent to CCSA as part of a series of emails from our resident chef, Dr. Linda Doody. She has been sharing her extensive collection of favorite recipes with friends, family, and the CCSA team as a means of maintaining connections during the COVID-19 pandemic.
