Using only the water remaining on the leaves after rinsing, steam the fresh spinach over high heat for about 4 minutes or until wilted.

Blanch the zucchini in the same manner until crisp-tender; drain.
In a large skillet, heat olive oil, add onions and saute over medium heat for 4 or 5 minutes, or until softened.
In a large mixing bowl, combine spinach, broccoli, zucchini, onions, garlic and basil.
In separate bowl, beat eggs.

Spoon vegetable mixture into 1 1/2 quart shallow baking dish.
