In a medium saucepot, sauté mushrooms and onions in warmed oil over medium-high heat, stirring often, about 6-8 minutes. Stir in rice, water or broth, salt & pepper to taste and bring to a boil. Cover, reduce heat to medium-low and simmer until liquid is completely absorbed, about 45 minutes. Remove covered pot from heat and let sit 10 minutes; uncover and fluff with fork. Transfer to large bowl, add apricots, walnuts, herbs, vinegar and toss to combine.
