Jerk Beets

Oh, yes! It's a thing and you will love the sweetness of the beets combined with the savoriness of jerk seasoning. Get ready!

Heads up!
I created this recipe for our Erectile Dysfunction episode of The Doc and Chef Show and after watching the video below you'll understand just how beets help with this challenging situation!



3 large beets, peeled and cut to large bite-sized pieces.

Jerk Seasoning

  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 tablespoon onion powder
  • 1 tablespoon garlic powder
  • 1 tablespoon ground allspice
  • 1 teaspoon cayenne
  • 1 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon dried thyme
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1 teaspoon dried parsley
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • ½ teaspoon ground clove
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
  • Juice of one lemon
  • ½ cup red wine vinegar
  • 4 scallions, slivered


In a container with a tight-fitting lid, shake together the jerk seasoning ingredients and set aside.

Preheat your oven to 375 and line a baking sheet or dish with parchment paper.

Combine the liquid ingredients in a bowl and toss the beets to coat. Drain away the liquid and toss with 2 tablespoons of jerk seasoning. Scatter the beets on to the parchment and tent a piece of aluminum foil over them so the beets can steam.

Roast for 35-40 minutes or until fork-ready.

Garnish with scallions.

Enjoy as-is or add to salads, pasta, pizza, whatever!
