OK I like you idea and i am happy to try to help. Maybe its because I like to open the cupboard door and will cook with what ever is inside.
OK what Google is lacking here is content it can read, and a lot of new landing pages to hit long tail keywords.
you have the search terms such as
what can i cook with backed beans?
a recipe with lamb, celery and eggs?
Which you site has the ideal data for, you just need to create landing pages for these. An ideal landing page would be;
Search function with pre selected ingredients and the ability to add more ingredients to refine the search.
150 - 200 unique words based round the combination of pre selected ingredients that page refers to.
The resulting links for those pages.
Build up these static page son the site and you start to have real estate to attack a large number of phrases, and deliver traffic.
