Okra & Sautéed Tomatoes

This Okra & Sautéed Tomatoes recipe contains a good deal of garlic, which I adore, but surprisingly when I tasted the finished dish it didn’t taste anywhere near as garlicky as I expected. And as per the suggestion in the book, it does taste better the next day when the flavours have had a chance to develop.
