Stewed Okra & Tomatoes

http://www.eatingwell.com/recipes/stewed_okra_tomatoes.html_0

From EatingWell:  September/October 1991

This simple stew highlights two summer stars—tomatoes and okra—in a simple stew. Okra (known as gombo in much of West Africa) does especially well in a hot growing season. In this dish, it appears as both vegetable and thickener, as is typical of many of the continent's okra dishes. Serve it over brown rice.
