Goat Cheese Stuffed Okra

1 poundfresh okra, washed and dried
8 ouncescreamy goat cheese
1/2 teaspoonbasil, dry
salt and pepper to taste
2 tablespoonsolive oil

Instructions

Combine basil, feta, salt and pepper, and set aside. Cut stem end off the okra pods and remove the seeds, trying not to split the okra pod. Stuff a teaspoon of cheese mixture into the okra, pushing the mixture firmly down into the pod. Heat oil in a sauté pan until hot. Sauté the okra pods 1-2 minutes. Keep a close watch on the okra; if they get too hot the cheese will begin to melt out of the pod.
