Food Life Needs Ghana Suya Spice
The distinctive flavor of Ghana street food comes from suya, the dry peanut spice rub used to coat freshly made street food.
Africa's friendliest country of Ghana is world-renowned for its award-winning suya dry rub recipe used on mushrooms and all types of vegetables. Spice blends using peanuts are a time tested street food recipe for classic grilled beef meats, pork, chicken, fish, and veggies.
Suya dry-rub spice mix recipes differ from house to house and person to person in Ghana.

Suya Ghanaian Dry-Rub Recipe for Stuffed Mushrooms
1 cup roasted peanuts
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon onion powder
2 teaspoons cayenne pepper
1 bouillon cube crushed
¼ teaspoon ginger
¼ teaspoon cloves
Add all spices to a coffee grinder and grind carefully taking care not to over-process the mixture or it will turn into peanut butter. The texture should resemble fine breadcrumbs. Rub spice mix on uncooked meat, rest for 15 minutes and grill kebabs as usual. Store unused portions in an airtight container or keep in the freezer in a sealed plastic bag.
