Treat yourself to a comforting bowl of warm, creamy rice pudding and enjoy a better night’s sleep. The goji berries sprinkled on top add fruity chew, while the pepitas offer nutty crunch and a tryptophan boost. Look for both at specialty grocery stores. If you can’t find them, sub tart cherries or pomegranates for the goji berries and walnuts for the pepitas; walnuts also contain tryptophan. A mild, less expensive honey works beautifully here; save the pricier, more robust honeys for a recipe where their flavor will be front and center.
Bring milk, water, honey, and salt to a simmer in a medium saucepan over medium-high. Stir in rice, and reduce heat to medium-low. Cook, uncovered, stirring often, until rice is tender and mixture is thickened, about 30 minutes.
Remove from heat, and stir in vanilla. Divide mixture evenly among 6 bowls; top each with 1 tablespoon goji berries and 1 tablespoon pepitas. Serve warm.
