White Castle isn't known for its healthy menu options, but it's looking to change that. On Tuesday, the Ohio-based burger chain introduced Veggie Sliders, a vegetarian version of its famous beef sliders. The restaurant that invented the 100-slider "crave crate" said it will offer the veggie patty for 99 cents for a limited time. The product received "rave reviews" during a testing period in New York and New Jersey, the company said. The restaurant chain said the sliders are made with Dr. Praeger's veggie patty and include carrots, zucchini, peas, spinach and broccoli.

White Castle's new veggie burger is, according to the company, "chock full of vegetables like carrots, zucchini, peas, spinach, broccoli and more – lightly seasoned, then grilled to perfection and placed on the signature Slider bun."White Castle / Twitter

"We are committed to asking good questions, listening to our customers and keeping up with changing tastes by developing new menu items that keep our guests craving and give them more options to feed the whole family," Jamie Richardson, White Castle vice president, said in a statement.
