I would like to echo out the term name from a custom taxonomy 'recipes' but all I get is the word "recipe" when it should say eg "pizza recipe". Is name the right argument here or I am mistaking it for slug?

   $term = get_terms( 'recipes' ); 
   echo '<div class="title">' . $term->name . 'recipe</div>';

I managed to solve this and I will post the answer:

  $args = array('number' => '1',);
  $terms = get_terms('recipes', $args );
    foreach( $terms as $term ){
    echo '<div class="title">' . $term->name . 'recipe</div>';
