  1. Start with the burger buns. Preheat the oven to 50° C (120° F) and turn it off. Combine all ingredients and mix well. Knead in the machine for about 5 minutes or 10 minutes by hand. Put the dough in a bowl, sprinkle with some flour, cover with a kitchen towel and let rise for 45 - 60 minutes in the warm oven, a wooden spoon wedged in the door.
  2. While the dough rises, prepare the patties. Drain the chickpeas and artichokes and squeeze out the excess water of the artichokes. In a food processor chop the onion and garlic very fine. Then add the chickpeas and chop in rough pieces, do so to the artichokes. Then add the rest of the ingredients and mix until just combined. Don't overmix. Pour into an airtight container and let rest in the fridge.
  3. When the dough doubled its size, drop it on a flour dusted surface and cut into 6 pieces, preheat the oven to 50° C (120° F) once again. Don't knead the pieces, just fold them into bun shapes and put them (fold on the bottom) on a lined baking tray. Cover with a kitchen towel and let rise for another 20 minutes.
  4. After that heat up the oven to 180° C (360° F), coat the buns with some warm water and sprinkle over sesame seeds. Bake in the oven for about 20 minutes until they start to brown, but are still soft. Let cool on a cooling rack.
  5. Remove the patty mix from the fridge, divide in six pieces, roll it into balls and flatten. Combine flaxseed and water in a deep dish and let thicken. Mix a cup of breadcrumbs in a deep dish and season with salt, pepper and paprika. Line a baking tray with parchment paper, spray with some olive oil and preheat the oven to 200° C (390° F). First dip the patties in the flaxseed then toss around in the breadcrumbs until completely covered. Pour on the tray and spray with some olive oil. Bake in the oven for 30 minutes, turn once after 15 minutes.
  6. Bake the rice paper bacon underneath the patties. Combine the ingredients for the marinade. Hold a sheet of rice paper under running water for a few seconds, fold in the middle and cut into strips. Take one strip and dip it in the marinade until completely covered and put on a lined baking tray. Proceed until all strips are next to each other on the tray. Bake for 5 - 10 minutes. The rice paper bacon burns easily, so keep an eye on it after 5 minutes.
  7. For the sriracha mayo combine all ingredients and season with salt.
  8. Slice the buns in half and put them with the cutting surface on a toaster and roast them a bit. Arrange the salad leaves on the bottoms and pour the sauce over. Then add the patties and bacon strips, cover with the tops.
