Is it just me or does replacing "are" with "is" sound more correct?

Yeah, i think that sounds more natural too, but if you separate the sentence out, it sounds weird: "their is meat, there ARE vegetables, there is fish". Idk what is technically right, but it probably doesn't matter too much, because English is a terrible language. :)

    "Are" is correct. Three ingredients were given; these ARE in the recipe. Helpful?

    Isn't 菜 too vague for vegetables? Wouldn't 蔬菜 be more accurate?
