I was a bit skeptical about the vanilla BUT this came out fantastic! Will be a regular Healthy Fries maker from now on! Fresca

Superb recipe! I was a little sceptic about the vanilla, especially since my dash is a VERY healthy dash (and I use my own homemade, majorly alcoholic Ruth's Homemade Vanilla Extract), but I threw caution (and potatoes) to the wind and went ahead and added some to the mix. I also used an onion soup mix that doesn't have any MSG in it. Didn't have any shitake shroom so I just used some beautiful, whole champignon. I also pre-cooked the potatoes and sweet potatoes in the microwave, it's what we've always done and works for us. Excellent flavor, will absolutely do this again with many experimental veggies. Next on the list are carrots and fennel bulbs!
