Vegan Suya is a vegetarian friendly version of Suya. Suya is an extremely popular street food in West Africa. The Hausa people of northern Nigeria, Cameroon, Niger, Ghana and some part of Sudan are known for this barbecue meat skewer. It is called Suya in Nigeria, Kyinkyinga (pronounced chin-chin-ga) in Ghana and Agashe in Sudan and it is generally made with beef, ram, or chicken. As a marinade, various spices which include peanut cake, salt, vegetable oil and other flavorings are used on the meat. For this vegan recipe, the meat is substituted for Oyster Mushrooms. Vegan Suya is a twist on the regular suya with the same great taste and even healthier.


  • 2 cups of Oyster Mushrooms
  • 1 teaspoon of dried red chillies
  • ½ teaspoon ground ginger
  • 2 teaspoons finely ground roasted peanuts (skip this if allergic)
  • ½ teaspoon garlic
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • ¼ teaspoon salt.
  • ½ teaspoon onion
  • 1 bouillon cube


  1. Wash mushroom and dry properly with a pepper towel
