White Castle Welcomes Vegetarians

Famous for their petite square hamburgers and the restaurant’s appearance in Harold and Kumar Go to White Castle, White Castle is now serving veggie sliders in select New Jersey and New York locations (see list of locations below). And to a vegetarian’s relief, they are only 99 cents! A refreshing figure compared to other fast food chain veggie options. White Castle uses Dr. Praeger’s brand of veggie burgers for their sliders (see list of ingredients below). Judging by the hype from online vegetarian communities, it seems the taste has received positive reviews. If you have tried White Castle’s new veggie sliders, please comment with your thoughts.

Ingredients: Carrots, onions, string beans, oat bran, soybeans, zucchini, peas, broccoli, corn, soy flour, spinach, expeller pressed canola oil, red peppers, arrowroot, corn starch, garlic, corn meal, salt, parsley, black pepper.

Fun Fact: Kumar is a vegetarian on the set of Harold and Kumar Go to White Castle, the White Castle hamburgers he bit into had been replaced with veggie burgers.

    Like them but brisket is just sloppy joe w the BBQ sauce. Brisket is usually plain maybe buttery flavor & melded with potato on top like usually served with it. Browmed mashed potato patty to hold together type. Bean very dry. I expected couple or several beans navy, more paste than patty with hint sweet onion like texture black bean soup, add strong celery to offset heavy bean taste.

    Also take peppers out of all. So many have severe allergies to any pepper (not black pepper, that’s a berry) or flakes or juice. It’s getting impossible to find anything without them. That could be offered in a sauce option.

    All need juicy bun like original sliders, garlic oil on grill maybe.
