You can use a food processor to make this a speedy recipe--otherwise, just mash and blend the ingredients together with a fork.
Put everything but the chickpeas in the food processor and blend until the onion is minced finely.
Then add the well-drained chickpeas (garbanzo beans) and pulse on and off a few times until the mixture is blended, but still with a few chunks.
You can get kelp (seaweed) flakes in most Asian food stores or in many health food stores.
This mixture can be used in "Tuna-less" sandwiches or on a bed of greens.
You can also add ingredients to make this more like what you had as a kid. My mom used to put sweet green pickle relish in her tuna sandwiches. Some folks omit the onion or celery.
Make sure you drain the chickpeas thoroughly, or the mixture will tend to be soupy.
You may add more or less mayonnaise to make the mixture the right texture for your tastes.
