Warm Rice Salad With Fruits and Nuts

2 12 cups water
1 cup brown rice, uncooked
14 cup raisins
14 cup dried apricot, chopped
2 tablespoons red bell peppers, very finely chopped
2 tablespoons green onions, thinly sliced (green and white parts)
2 tablespoons pine nuts, lightly roasted
2 tablespoons water
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
1 teaspoon parsley flakes
12 teaspoon ground cumin
14 teaspoon ground coriander
18 teaspoon garlic powder
salt and pepper


Bring water to a boil in a medium saucepan. Add rice. When water boils again, reduce heat to low, cover, and simmer 45 minutes, until rice is tender and most of the water has been absorbed. Remove from heat and let stand covered, 5 minutes. Then spoon rice into a large bowl. Add raisins, apricots, bell pepper, onion, and pine nuts. Toss to combine. In a small bowl or custard cup, combine remaining ingredients. Add to rice and mix well. Serve right away (Leftovers can be served cold).
