Pile on the pilaf

Can't tell you the last time I simply posted a recipe from a cookbook (except maybe my own). Attribution is to Jane Brody.

Actual title: Pilaf with a Purpose (adapted)
1 1/2 tsp olive oil
1 tsp butter
1/2 cup broken angel hair pasta
2/3 cup finely chopped onion
1/2 cup chopped mushrooms
1 cup bulgar
2 cups vegetable, chicken or beef broth
1/4 tsp salt
pepper to taste
1/3 cup basil, torn
1/3 cup dry-roasted, salted sunflower seeds
1 cup garbanzos, canned, rinsed, and drained

Saute pasta in butter and oil until browned, c. 3 minutes.
Add mushrooms and onion; saute c. 4 minutes
Add bulgar, stir to coat; saute c. 3 minutes.
Add all remaining ingredients and stir to blend.
Bring to a boil.
Cover and simmer for 20 minutes.

A feast for a King (or is it a Pasha?).
