1 In a small saucepan, place tomatoes, garlic and vinegar and set over a high heat. Bring to the boil, then reduce heat and simmer, stirring occasionally, for 15 minutes, or until sauce thickens. Season with cracked black pepper. Set aside.
2 In a large saucepan of boiling water, cook kumara for 10-12 minutes, or until just tender. Drain. Return kumara to pan. Add spread and milk then season with pepper. Mash until smooth. Cover to keep warm.
3 Meanwhile, using a meat mallet or rolling pin, flatten chicken between 2 pieces of plastic wrap until 5mm thick. On a plate, place flour. In a shallow bowl, whisk egg white with 1 tablespoon water. On a second plate, place quinoa flakes. Dip chicken into flour, then egg white mixture and then quinoa and place on a third plate. Continue to coat remaining chicken to make 4 crumbed schnitzels.
4 In a large non-stick frying pan, heat olive oil over medium-high. Cook schnitzels for 2-3 minutes each side, or until golden and cooked through.
5 Meanwhile, in a medium saucepan of boiling water, cook broccoli for 2 minutes, or until just tender. Drain.
6 Serve chicken with tomato sauce, kumara mash, broccoli and rocket.
