  • 1 food processor or mash with a fork
  • 1 Medium bowl


  • 1 398 ml/14 oz can hearts of palm, drained
  • 1 cup canned chickpeas rinsed and drained
  • ¼ cup dill pickle diced
  • 2 tablespoons red onion finely diced
  • 1 small celery rib diced
  • 1 tablespoon small capers measure then finely chop
  • 2 seaweed snack sheets
  • cup vegan mayonnaise I use Vegenaise
  • 2 teaspoons tamari
  • 2 teaspoons caper brine
  • 1 teaspoon dill pickle juice or sub lemon juice
  • ½ teaspoon granulated garlic powder
  • salt and pepper to taste


  • To the food processor add chickpeas and hearts of palm. Pulse until mixed but not mushy, leave a little texture. Scrape down sides as needed
  • With a spatula add mixture into mixing bowl, crumble in the seaweed sheets and add rest of ingredients. Mix until combined. Season with salt and pepper if needed. Chill in the fridge or serve right away.
  • Enjoy! Lovely in a sandwich, wrap, with crackers or on a bed of lettuce. I love it with a side of potato chips!

I quite enjoy this ‘tuna mix’ in a sandwich with toasted buttered bread and lettuce, sometimes I add avocado and tomato!
