“It was like the Japanese Occupation all over again. The more atrocities Marcos committed, the more Filipinos he tortured and killed—the more joined the underground. It became a matter of honor to do something against the oppressor… Filipinos in tremendous numbers found they were not afraid to die for freedom. The country became one vast concentration camp—except where men dared to be free… Elsewhere rose a cacophony of voices, like the exhalations of a parched earth at the first patter of rain, a steady outpouring of sound that would grow to a din with the passing of the seasons. It would explode one night in an avenue named Epifanio de los Santos. The explosion would be louder than the one that brought down Plaza Miranda a decade and a half before, echoing as it would not only across the land but across the globe. It would happen one night, when the stars were bright and the world was still. A massing of nuns and whores, priests and beggars, merchants and medicine men, the sick and the whole, the sellers of the cures of the body and the sellers of cures for the soul. One peaceful night, the ax would fall with a suddenness that would surprise even those who swung it. There would be no resistance from the Palace. The vaunted armies of martial law would evaporate as fast as the vapors in the night with the coming of day…. Martial law would be over.”
- Conrado de Quiros, journalist and writer, in an excerpt in his book “Dead Aim: How Marcos Ambushed Philippine Democracy”
In celebration of the 28th anniversary of the peaceful revolution of 1986 that ended an oppressive dictatorship in the Philippines, to the shock of the entire world.

Brown Rice Sushi rolls
Rice in sushi is obviously the most important part… Traditionally, Japanese use sushi rice - which is a type of glutinous white rice that sticks together, it almost coagulates.
Tradition kind of loses itself when it enters my kitchen, I scramble around and throw things together and more or less, hope for the best. If I have a craving, I’ll do my best to support it by researching & stocking up on exactly what I need or I simply recreate it with what I have. Today, I felt like sushi andlucky I had some left over overcooked brown rice from last night.
*An important note if using another type of rice like brown, is to overcook it so it does stick together. Today, I used a little psyllium husk just to help it bind.
Sushi is really simple, and I suppose that’s what makes it so damn great. Like a pizza, you just throw leftovers onto a base and bake it -that was the original idea anyway… so yes, back to the sushi:
There’s about 4 ingredients in here: spinach, green beans, purple carrot and sauerkraut…+ the black tahini - You need something creamy in there to round off on all the textures. Avocado would be great in this too but I forgot to put some in.
On your nori sheet, spread out the rice (works best when warm), ideally you want to cover about a third of the sheet in rice from one corner to just over half way of the sheet - i didn’t have that much rice so it didn’t cover but it’s not that crucial because it STILL WORKED!
Here you can sprinkle some dulse flakes or sesame seeds, I added a little tamari here just so I didnt have to dip in any later.
Then more or less pile in order of size, so I adddded the spinach, sauerkraut, green beans, purple carrot ; sliced finely, black tahini oh and some goji berries on top…and some coriander, I just had some already cut and washed so I thought I’d chuck it in.
*you can see in the first photo that each vegetable forms a collumn, this is the best way to assemble.
Sprouts, capsicum, tofu, seeds are all other great things to combine into your roll.
Now roll from the side that is covered to the other and have some water or vinegar ready to dip your finger in and wet the edge so that it can stick together. I lazily lick mine because I’m the only one eating it and I don’t mind, but whatever you prefer.
roll cut dip and eat. How’s ya father! ;)
