  1. Heat the oven to gas 6, 200°C, fan 180°C. Unroll the puff pastry and cut into 4 equal rectangles. Transfer on its baking paper to a large baking sheet, or 2 smaller baking trays.
  2. Mix the soft cheese with half the thyme and season. Spread over the pastry rectangles, leaving a 1cm border at the edge. Toss the squash and sweet potato mix with 1 tbsp oil in a bowl and spoon over the top of the cream cheese. Bake for 30-35 mins until the pastry is golden and crisp and the squash is tender. If using 2 trays on different oven shelves, swap them halfway through cooking.
  3. Cook the green beans in a pan of boiling salted water for 4-5 mins until tender, then drain well. Serve alongside the tarts, scattered with the remaining thyme leaves, and a drizzle more oil.
