3. Stir in the sliced bell peppers, carrots, and cabbage. Cook for a few minutes until the vegetables are slightly tender but still crisp.

 

4. In a bowl, whisk together the peanut butter, vegetable or chicken broth, tomato paste, ground cumin, ground coriander, cayenne pepper, salt, and pepper until well combined.
