    3 3/4   c            Frozen petit peas, defrosted
    1       tb           Extra virgin olive oil
    2       ea           Jalapeno peppers, seeded &
                         -- minced
    1       tb           Grated ginger
      1/2   tb           Lemon juice
    1       t            Honey
    1       tb           Cilantro, minced
    1       tb           Mint, minced
   10       ea           Phyllo sheets
                         Olive oil spray
 
   Place peas between several layers of kitchen towels to absorb excess
   liquid.
   Place in a food processor & pulse until reduced to a coarse pulp. Combine
   with oil, peppers, ginger, lemon juice & honey in a large skillet. Saute
   over
   moderate heat for 2 to 3 minutes.  Stir in the herbs.  Let cool & divide
   into
   24 portions.
   Preheat oven to 350F.  Cut phyllo sheets in half lengthwise & fourths
   crosswise, forming 80 4 X 6 squares.  Cover phyllo with slightly damp
   towel.  Lay one square on a sheet of waxed paper.  Spray it with olive oil.
   Repaet with 2 more squares.  Place a portion of the filling in the centre.
   Bring up the opposite corners of the phyllo, crimp firmly & twist the ends
   to
   form purses, each with a pointed top.  Repeat with remaining phyllo.
   Spray baking sheets with oil.  Transfer pastries to sheet & bake until
   golden
   brown, 20 to 25 minutes.  Transfer to a platter & serve at once.
