6 to 10 Green Bell Peppers ( they do not have to be the huge ones)

2 to 3 cups left over Fried Cabbage 
1/2 cup sunflower hearts
4 T. Ground Flax Seed

Place Green Peppers in boiling water and boil 5 minutes, remove from water, drain water out from insides and place in a 13 x 9 casserole dish.

Cook Couscous according to package directions and put in bowl.

Take the tops of green peppers and trim any good green pepper off and dice, add to a fry pan with a little olive oil and sautee about 5 minutes. Add left over Fried Cabbage and heat, stirring occasionally ( about 5 minutes.)

Add to Couscous.

Add the Sunflower hearts, flax seeds, ketchup and about 2/3 of grated cheese and stir until mixed well.

Fill the green bell peppers generously with mixture and top each with a little grated cheese.

Bake at 350 degrees for about 20 minutes.
