    Bell peppers are green as they mature and slowly change to red if not harvested. But since they don't become green again, that's not a cycle in the strictest sense.

    Edit: Though, if you replant the seeds.. there's your recycled green.

    The clue is cryptic (of course!)

    I've HEARD I'm red
    leaves, peppers, traffic lights do NOT fit - its NOT cooked.
