Put the artichoke hearts, garlic, green onions, parsley, garbanzo beans, kidney beans, ground flaxseed, tahini, and black pepper in a food processor; pulse about eight times, until blended. Now scrape down the sides and pulse another six times. Don't overprocess! Move to a bowl and gently stir in cooked rice.
Divide the mixture into four portions and form into patties about 1/2" thick.
Heat a larage nonstick frying pan over medium heat and coat with cooking spray. Fry the burgers until the bottoms are brown, about 5 minutes. Spray the tops of the burgers with the cooking spray and turn over. Cook until brown, about 5 minutes more. Serve on buns, if desired. Enjoy!
