The Vegetarian “Beef” With White Castle


Apparently, a few members of the vegetarian community are disappointed in White Castle for having veggie sliders. But, is it a matter of a fast-food joint like White Castle cheapening the vegetarian lifestyle by having veggie sliders? Or is it the fact that vegetarians feel as though vegetarian dishes are transitioning from healthy gourmet food to vegetable-stuffed patties searing in a puddle of animal grease? The patties are said to come from Dr. Praeger, but there is no solid evidence to prove this. Either way, I have no issue with the Dr. Praeger brand or White Castle’s attempt to cater to the growing vegetarian community. The only thing I can hope for is the ethical handling of vegetarian products. It isn’t beneficial to have a veggie patty cooking in bacon, chicken, or beef fat.
