    Holy Salt Shaker!! Oh no, not with sodium >2000!! Per serving? I presume it comes mainly from your broth, soy sauce, steak seasoning and why oh why are you using dry roasted cashews? Tasty, probably. Killer, definitely. You need to remember that the rec. Sod/day is 2300! For some of us 1500/d - 8/9/10
