Just to set the record straight, there are a variety of types of Gumbo. According to Wikipedia Creole style gumbo DOES sometimes include tomatoes . . . "Another division in types of gumbo is between Creole and Cajun styles. Creole gumbos generally use a lighter (but still medium-brown) roux and may include tomatoes, while Cajun gumbos are made with a darker roux and never contain tomatoes."
