When people normally say Starbucks, the first thing that springs to mind is ‘coffee’. However, Starbucks has one or two tricks up its sleeve. We love nothing more than swinging by for a quick Starbucks spinach feta wrap… This cheesy treat makes the visit worth it. Today we are going to show you how to make this Starbucks recipe at home. It’s really simple and just like the real thing.
How To Make Starbucks Spinach Feta Wrap
Like most wraps, this copycat Starbucks spinach and feta wrap is pretty much assembling the right ingredients in the right order. How you prepare them makes all the difference.
We start by wilting some fresh spinach leaves in a pan. Simple? But there is an extra step. You want to make sure that they have all the moisture removed. That was you don’t end up with spinach juice soaking into your tortilla and making it all soggy.
From there, we transfer the spinach to a large bowl and add some super tasty elements.
Oh, just some super luxuriant cream cheese and some sweet and slightly tangy sun-dried tomatoes! And we don’t stop there when it comes to flavor either! We supplement the taste with the addition of a little garlic and some seasoning!
If you’ve ever had an authentic Starbucks spinach feta wrap, you’ll know that there’s also a layer of eggs in there as well. This is the point where we make them. It’s up to you whether you include the yolks, but to make it like the original Starbucks recipe, we just use the whites. We gently scramble the egg whites.
From there, we start to assemble the Starbucks wrap. Start with a white floury tortilla laid out flat. Add a nice even layer of egg whites, and then go in with your feta, crumbling it liberally. We then spread the spinach mixture and roll the entire thing up like a big burrito.
But we aren’t quite done yet.
The copycat Starbucks spinach feta wrap is toasted on each side, and we do the same. Add it to a hot skillet and give it a minute on each side until the feta melts slightly and your burrito turns ever so slightly crispy. An incredible selection from our list of spinach recipes you should make for breakfast or lunch.

Tips and Tricks
We tend to cheat a little and use store-bought white flour tortillas, but if you want to make your own go right ahead. This recipe will work well with either
When making (or buying) a pack of tortillas, make sure that you get the largest you can. While none of the ingredients are particularly bulky, they all add up, and the last thing you want is your wrap to be overloaded!
Here’s a great tip when cooking spinach. Go overboard and fill the pan. As spinach cooks, it reduces down significantly. We’ve lost count of the number of times we’ve had to add more because we underestimated how much it would wilt.
While we use feta in this recipe, you could give other cheese a go. Goat’s cheese is a firm favorite. Just like feta, it is salty and fairly strong tasting. Alternatively, blue cheese makes for a unique taste.
You can also crisp up these wraps in the oven. In the last stage, instead of frying them, just pop them on a tray at 390°F for around 10 minutes.
If you’ve used the above tip, here’s another that saves you from wasting the egg yolks. Beat them and use them to brush your feta and spinach wrap before putting them in the oven. It will give your wraps a nice shiny browned appearance.
Sometimes we like to accessorize our Starbucks spinach feta wraps. We’ve added green onion, chopped white onions, pesto, and occasionally chopped chili to ours. Feel free to add your own special touches if you like the extras.
While we use white tortillas in this recipe, you can also use wholemeal in exactly the same way. Corn tortillas are also a good option (although it does feel like you are having Mexican for breakfast)
We use sun-dried tomatoes, but this isn’t a deal-breaker. If you want to get a similar taste, but with regular tomatoes, just pop them into the oven at 350°F for around 20 minutes.
