I LOVE this Starbucks spinach quiche recipe. I was so thrilled that I finally nailed it, even the look with the crisscross pattern on top of the pie.

Before diving into the details, I want to express my gratitude to my mother-in-law for being a loyal fan and supportive tester of my spinach pie, spinach quiche, whatever you want to call it.
Many people think that I nail my new recipes the very first time. Over 98% of time, I do. But once in a while, it takes me almost like forever to get them right.
I think this is THE recipe that took me many, many trial and error to nail it. I learn a great lesson here. Persistence will lead you to success. Don't let failure to scare you from moving forward.
I love Starbucks coffee. In Hong Kong, they used to have this spinach quiche. I always thought that it was more like a pie instead of quiche.
Therefore, throughout all these years, I have been making spinach pie and wondered why I couldn't make it the way how Starbucks did it until lately.
The traditional Starbucks spinach quiche used fillo dough to make the pie crispy and light.
But to stick to my principle to make an easy dinner in no time, I used store bought pie crust. That's the only difference between the real Starbucks spinach quiche and this recipe.
As of the time of writing this recipe, I still haven’t come up an idea of how to use the leftover pie crust. I was raised to not to throw food away. I hope that I will figure it out in the near future. If you have some good idea, please share with us by filling out the Contact Me form. I would greatly appreciate it.
For now, I hope you will grab a cup of Starbucks coffee, like I always do, while enjoying this quiche. (If you don’t like Starbucks coffee, that’s ok, too. You still can enjoy this delicious recipe the way you want.)
1 Box frozen spinach (thawed and squeezed out all the liquid)
1 pound ricotta cheese
2 store-bought 9" deep-dish pie crusts (Use a good brand, like Marie Callender’s Deep Dish Pie Shells. It will make it easier for you to make this pie. The presentation definitely is better, too.)
1 egg (beaten)
1/2 teaspoon Salt
1/4 teaspoon peppers
