The Difference between Ingredient(s) and Recipe

“Ingredient(s)” refers to any of the substances (or foods) that are combined to make a particular dish. For example, the ingredients needed to prepare vegetable stew include; oil, pepper, carrots, green pepper, onions, tomatoes, etc. 

A “recipe” is “a set of instructions telling you how to prepare and cook a particular food...” For example, a recipe for preparing vegetable stew is, Heat oil over medium heat; add sliced onions, pepper, tomatoes, and let it simmer for some time before you add your sliced carrots and green pepper. 

In a nutshell, a recipe tells you how to use the ingredients required for cooking a particular food.
