I liked this recipe okay-- I might make it again. I actually like okra-- but I was scared the lemon would make the already acid tomato sauce too tart. So I omitted the lemon juice and put a 1/4 tsp. of cinnamon, and the flavor was nice. I might cut the okra next time-- as whole pods it was a bit stringy to work through. I also added the garlic a minute before the tomatoes.

Now we are not okra fans but every now and then I feel compelled to buy some just to see if there is a recipe out there that makes this odd vegetable edible. This recipe is pretty good and is certainly easy to make.
