Place bulgar in a deep bowl and pour enough hot water to cover it. Place a lid and let the bulgar swell up for 10-15 minutes. Bulgar now will be soft and no water should be left in the bowl. Add the oil, lemon juice. tomato paste, chilli, cumin powder and mix well. Mix in all the chopped greens, spring onions and herbs. Drizzle more olive oil if you need to. Season with salt and pepper before serving.
