Wash the okra, trim the stems, but leave on the caps.

In a large skillet, heat the olive oil over medium heat until hot but not smoking. Add the okra and saute, stirring occasionally, for 3 minutes.

Add the garlic, red pepper flakes, thyme, basil, and salt and pepper, to taste. Cook for 1 minute more, stirring constantly. Remove from heat and serve immediately.
