  • Chop vegetables - onion, celery and capers as directed. 
  • Grind up a small sheet of nori (or omit this step if using nori flakes). 
  • Mash your chickpeas with the back of a fork. This takes between 5-10 minutes to do well.
  • Chop small the hearts of palm or you can separate using two forks (similar to pulled meat or jackfruit).
  • Combine all the ingredients into a bowl and stir together really well.
  • Let set in the fridge for at least an hour, but it's really best if you make this a day or two ahead of time and really let it marinade in all the flavors.
  • Serve as desired (between two pieces of bread or other ideas in post).
