These rice and carrot torrejas are delicious on their own but you can always add a little hummus, guacamole or a few slices of avocado and a salad. The wonderful thing about this recipe is that if you already have cooked rice and eggs in the fridge, you can prepare a delicious lunch in just a few minutes. This time I used brown rice (I recommend using rice from the previous day), but you can prepare it with white rice if you want.
