This month we will explore oregano’s potential to enhance human health, while at the same time tasting a sampling of delicious recipes that make use of it.

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

Rosmarinic acid is known for its antioxidant, antiinflammatory, and antimicrobial properties. It has been studied in a wide variety of disease models including Alzheimer’s disease, rheumatoid arthritis, ulcers, and cancer.

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.
