  • DID YOU KNOW…
    • During the Spanish Civil War omelette without eggs it became popular because it was lean season. It was done with a mixture of flour and water in place of eggs, but now it is part of the vegan Spanish cuisine. The false omelette, made with orange peels instead of potatoes was also implemented during the Civil War in Spain. | wikipedia.org
