What fresh herb can I use in place of fresh oregano?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I have fresh parsley, thyme, etc. Would any of those herbs work in place of fresh oregano? Thanks

Btw, I want to make white beans with skordalia...

Ah, skordalia so it would be Greek oregano not Mexican oregano. Do you have any dried? I keep dried Greek oregano. You could add both parsley and thyme, but of course it won't taste exactly the same. It would still be good.

Marjoram, of course. I'd fall back to thyme as an alternate.

I'd say parsley

I had to look up skordalia in order to know what you were making.
None of the recipes I could find on-line had any type of herb in them, so you could probably leave it out and you'd be fine. If you think your recipe would suffer from a lack of herby goodness, I would suggest using parsley or marjoram, or even half and half if you have both on hand. Good luck!

Well thanks for the help everyone. I got overwhelmed by all the different answers here and just ended up making soup for dinner.

But I still want to make the recipe really soon. So I guess I'll try either the dried oregano or fresh parsley (we have tons of it).

And in all my years of cooking and watching the food network, I had no idea that there are different kinds of oregano. So I've learned something new today.
