Preheat oven to 400 F.
Wash and drain okra. Trim off any remaining stems leaving the okra whole and the two ends of the pod intact.
If okra is still damp, dry it. Toss the okra in the olive oil, salt and pepper. Lay the pods out on a rimmed baking sheet.
Roast okra in the preheated oven for 12 to 15 minutes, until tender and starting to brown. Halfway through the cooking process, flip the pods over and redistribute them front to back in the pan for even cooking.
Cool on paper towels and enjoy!
