Hi, 

Both can be used for reusability. 

But:
- A plugin recipe is a python code that you have packaged as a visual recipe: with inputs, outputs, and parameters. 
- An application-as-recipe is a sub flow that you have packaged as a visual recipe. So it can be a sequence of several visual or code recipes executing to generate an output.

Thanks Mattsco. 

So a Plugin is only a Python code or it can be any coding language. Can we not have visual recipes in Plugins?
