No matter how you go about this, You're going to have to style the page  
specifically due to the fact your normal loop won't know what to do with a  
list of terms..

So my suggestion, in this case, Would be to make a page with the same slug  
as the taxonomy which has a page template assoc. with it.
When hitting http://myurl.com/main-ingredient then, your page will be  
matched, Your page template will be included, and from there, you can run  
get_terms directly.

There are some cases where having a page is unwanted, for example to  
prevent other site editors from accidentally changing/deleting the page,  
but it can also have the advantage, that you can have normal text on the  
page (ie. post_content) and the terms listed along side that without  
having to deal with taxonomy metadata.
