Vegan Suya

Vegan Suya is a Suya that is suitable for vegetarians. In West Africa, suya is a very popular street snack. This BBQ beef skewer is popular among the Hausa people of northern Nigeria, Cameroon, Niger, Ghana, and parts of Sudan.

Suya is the Nigerian name, Kyinkyinga (pronounced chin-chin-ga) is the Ghanaian name, and Agashe is the Sudanese name. It’s usually cooked with beef, ram, or chicken.

Various spices, such as peanut cake, salt, vegetable oil, and other flavorings, are used as a marinade on the meat. Oyster Mushrooms are used instead of beef in this vegan meal.

Vegan Suya is a healthier version of normal suya with the same excellent taste.
