The names of the various produce in the recipe refer to their respective produce codes, and the recipe directions clue arithmetic operations to perform on these produce codes.

Call the red, blue, and green bowls *a*, *b*, and *c* respectively.

- d = 4030 = Regular Kiwifruit
- e = 4091 = Sweet Potato
- f = 4459 = Ugli Fruit
- g = 4703 = Red Pasilla Pepper
- h = 4649 = Oyster Mushrooms
- i = 4024 = Small Bartlett Pear
- j = 4738 = Radicchio
- k = 4113 = Small Criterion Apples
- l = 4884 = Arugula
- m = 4257 = Cherimoya
- n = 4924 = Almonds
- o = 4931 = Raw Peanuts
- p = 4060 = Broccoli
- q = 4555 = Savoy Cabbage
- r = 4552 = Chinese Cabbage

- a = de + fg + (h + j + l) - (i + k + m)
- b = 5000*n + o - p
- c = q + 2r

- a = 37459284
- b = 24620871
- c = 13659

(a+b)/c = 4545 = **BOK CHOY**, which is the answer to the puzzle.
