This recipe offers an alternative to warm, comforting rice pudding for dessert, using nutty flavored brown rice in place of the usual white varieties, and honey instead of the usually generous dose of sugar. Fresh fruit brightens the homey bowl, and makes the dessert a perfect ending all year round. In winter, try orange sections, sliced kiwi fruit and red grapes in this dish. For fall, you could use fresh figs, cubed pears and dried apricots. This recipe is perfect for springtime, and you could swap the peaches for strawberries or raspberries in summer.
