  1. Coconut aminos instead of soy sauce. 113 my sodium. Gluten free. Delicious!

  2. Good recipe, but way too much sodium in the soy sauce. 700 mg in 1 tablespoon. 2/3 cup gives you the recommended allowance for about a month. Please consider revising the recipe to include no more than a dash of soy sauce and something else for the flavor.
