  • In a food processor, quickly break up chickpeas, celery, and dill pickle until they are flaky and combined, but not to the point of becoming a creamy spread. (You may need to stop and scrape down the sides, so that everything breaks up evenly.)
  • Transfer the chickpea mixture to a mixing bowl with eggless mayonnaise, stoneground mustard, celery seed, a pinch of dill & salt, and combine.
  • Spread vegan mayo onto one side of the bread slices, if you like. Top four of the slices with vegan tuna salad, and then sandwich them with the remaining pieces of bread.
