- Preheat oven to 425°F (220°C) and lightly oil six 1-cup (250 mL) ramekins.
- In a large pot, heat 3 tbsp (45 mL) oil over medium-high heat. Add onion, celery and sweet potato; cover and cook, stirring occasionally, for 10 minutes or until tender.
- Meanwhile, on a lightly floured work surface, roll out pastry into a 12- by 8-inch (30 by 20 cm) rectangle. Cut into six 4-inch (10 cm) squares; cover and refrigerate until ready to use.
