For those who are unaware, paella traces its origins to Valencia, Spain. Spoon University reported that the dish was made with rice “and any other ingredients that were available around the rice fields, including tomatoes, onions, snails, and beans for added texture.” Variations that emerged in the meal’s infancy were created based on local ingredients and diets. Seafood was eventually added to the dish and it has since evolved into the paella that’s routinely eaten today.
