Ingredients:

1 pound fresh okra, stem trimmed away
Salt to taste
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
Fresh thyme leaves to taste (optional)
Freshly ground pepper

PREPARATION:
1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Rinse okra and drain well on a towel, drying well before cooking.
2. Place okra in a large bowl; toss with olive oil until pods are lightly coated; sprinkle with salt to taste.
3. Use your hands or a slotted spoon to remove okra from the bowl, leaving excess oil behind. Place okra in a single layer on a sheet pan.
4. Roast 15 minutes, shaking the pan every 5 minutes to avoid burning on one side. When done, the okra will be lightly browned and tender with a roasted aroma.
5. Remove pods to a large platter and toss with thyme leaves and freshly ground pepper. Serve hot.
