Directions Preparation:40min › Ready in:40min
Put the burghul in a mixing bowl, pour over enough boiling water to cover and stir well. Leave to soak for 15–25 minutes.
Meanwhile, make the dressing. Whisk together the cumin, garlic and lemon juice in a small bowl, then slowly whisk in the olive oil.
Drain the burghul in a sieve, pressing out any excess water, then return it to the bowl. Add the yellow capsicum, tomatoes, onion, cucumber, carrot, parsley, coriander and mint, plus the chilli, if you are using it. Pour the dressing over the top and season with pepper to taste. Fold gently to mix well.
Arrange the lettuce leaves on four plates or a serving platter. Pile the tabouli salad on the leaves and sprinkle the goat's cheese over the top. Garnish with the sliced radishes.
