3 teaspoons vegetable oil
2 teaspoons grated, peeled fresh ginger
3 garlic cloves, minced
1 cup fat-free, less-sodium chicken broth
1/2 cup natural-style peanut butter
1/4 cup low-sodium soy sauce
3 tablespoons rice or white wine vinegar

Cooking spray
2 red bell peppers, cut into strips
1 pound snow peas, trimmed

Preparation

Shave the carrots lengthwise into thin strips using a vegetable peeler; set aside.

Heat 1 tsp. oil in a small saucepan over medium heat. Toss in ginger and garlic; sauté for 30 seconds. Add broth, peanut butter, soy sauce, vinegar, chili garlic sauce and salt; stir well. Simmer for 7 minutes, stirring. Remove from heat; keep warm.
