Vegan Kyinkyinga/Suya -Ghanaian Kebab

Vegan suya 2

Kyinkyinga (pronounced chin-chin-ga) is a popular street food in Ghana. It is also referred to by the name Suya. Kyinkyinga is basically a shish kebab but it is made with different spices. It is usually prepared on the grill and sold by street vendors or local chop bars. However, it was a special occasion type of food in my house. My mother mostly made Suya on holidays and for family parties.

It is typically made using lamb, liver, beef, or goat meat chunks. On Thanksgiving, I decided to recreate a vegan version of this holiday dish. I am pleased to tell you that I was successful in this mission. Click here to feast on this spicy delight. Continue reading
