If you are breastfeeding, there's really no need to rush into solid foods. My dd didn't eat solids food proper till after her first birthday! Any foods before the first birthday is really more for texture, variation, getting used to the idea of eating, rather than being a very serious source of nutrition. So do not fret if your baby does not eat a lot of anything.
For veggies, I used to steam sweet potatoes, or zucchini, or sweet peas, then puree them, and freeze in ice-cubes. Then I mix with some rice cereal and breastmilk, and she eats some. You can add some cinnamon to the zucchini. Broccoli can be treated the same way too, same for potatoes and carrots.
Or, just steam them until they are real soft (so they can be broken just with the gums), and serve as finger food.
