Ok roasted broccoli fans, this Suya Spiced Roasted Broccoli recipe is a must try.
Let’s Talk About This Suya Spice
This Nigerian spice blend by Seasonality Spices is traditionally made with skewered meat that has been marinated in the spice and other flavors, but it turns out this lovely aromatic blend doesn’t go so bad with veggies either.
I felt that this spice had a lot of richness balanced with heat, and with components like paprika and garlic and onion amongst others, this spice could do a lot of things with a lot of meals.
Apparently, the traditional skewed street food –Suya– is marinated in oil with roasted peanuts, ginger and pepper, (kind of like a satay) so I brought some of those flavors into this recipe.

Roasted Broccoli Time
Suya Spiced Roasted Broccoli
Roasted broccoli approves of suya spice, along with garlic and ginger for even more flavor. Try this with roasted peanuts or even peanut butter.
- 2 cups broccoli florets
- 1 tbsp coconut oil
- 2 garlic cloves minced
- 1/2 tbsp ginger paste
- 1 tsp suya spice
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1/2 tsp pepper
Preheat oven to 375.
Toss all ingredients together on a sheet pan, and roast in the oven for about 20 minutes.
If I had peanuts on hand, I totally would have roasted them along with the broccoli, but I did get to try the broccoli with peanut butter on a sweet potato soon after I made it.
Have a lovely Sunday!
