"Chuna" (Chickpea Tuna)

1 can of chickpeas (garbanzo beans), rinsed and drained well
1 celery rib, chopped finely
1 green onion (white part only), chopped finely
a handful of grapes, cut into quarters
2 T. firm tofu
1/4 cup cold water
2 T. apple cider vinegar
1 T. tahini
1 t. date syrup (or other sweetener)
1 t. dijon mustard
1/8 t. dried dill
1 t. kelp granules or 1/4 nori sheet cut into tiy pieces (this gives the "ocean" flavor)
salt and pepper to taste

Mash chickpeas in a bowl until completely mashed (no whole chickpeas). Add chopped celery, green onion, and grapes.
Blend tofu, water, vinegar, tahini, sweetener, mustard, dill, and kelp granules in small blender until smooth. Add salt to taste. Stir dressing a bit at a time into chickpea mixture. You may not desire to use all of the dressing. Add pepper if desired. Serve on toast with sliced tomatoes and lettuce if desired. CHILL BEFORE SERVING.
