3 green onions (scallions), chopped finely
1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh rosemary
2 cloves garlic, crushed
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 x 8-cutlet veal rack (1kg)
2 small kumara (orange sweet potato) (500g), chopped coarsely

1 tablespoon plain (all-purpose) flour
¼ cup (60ml) dry white wine

3. Roast, about 30 minutes, or until browned all over and cooked as desired. Remove from dish and cover to keep warm.
4. Heat remaining oil in roasting dish; cook brown onion and remaining garlic, stirring, until onion softens. Add mushrooms; cook, stirring, about 5 minutes or until just tender.

5. Meanwhile, boil, steam or microwave kumara until tender; drain. Mash kumara in large bowl with butter and half the cream until smooth.
