Method

1. Heat 2 tbsp olive oil in a heavy-bottomed pan. Add carrots, mushroom, celery, onion, garlic, little salt and pepper. Saute for 2 minutes. Add potato cubes, mix well and saute for a minute. Add butter, sprinkle all purpose flour and mix well. Stir for a minute. Add Italian seasoning and mix well. Next add vegetable broth. Mix well. Season with enough salt and pepper. Simmer for 10 – 12 minutes until potatoes are cooked and gravy thickens. Add milk/ heavy cream. Cook for 2 more minutes. Switch off. Garnish with chopped parsley.

2. Heat oven at 400 F. Thaw the puff pastry sheet. Cut three pieces of puff pastry and roll them slightly and cut into circles slightly larger than the tops of ramekins. Brush the edges of the puff pastry circles with beaten egg/ water.

3. Grease 3 ramekins with butter / olive oil. Pour the cooked vegetable mixture until 3/4th full. Top with the puff pastry circle. Press the edges of the puff pastry circles on to the ramekins using a fork or your fingers. Prick them using a fork for steam to escape. Brush with beaten egg (this is optional). Bake for 17 – 18 minutes until puff pastry sheet is golden colored. Serve after 5 mts.
