  • 3 tablespoons vegetable or olive oil

Add the chickpeas, nutritional yeast, kelp, lemon juice, salt and pepper until they are tiny pieces. Stop before it becomes hummus, but go until it looks kind of like flakey tuna, about 8-10 pulses.

Step 3

In a large bowl mix vegan mayo, pickles and celery until well combined.

Add the chickpea mixture to the mayo mixture and mix well. Be careful not to mush the chickpeas.
