How can I get my 9mo to eat more veggies?

So far, my DD is eating pureed sweet potatoes, banana/strawberries, and applesauce. She also has frozen mangos and peaches in her little mesh thing. But I cannot get her to eat any other veggies. We've tried peas, green beans and just recently, cauliflower. I've tried mixing in applesauce to help with the taste, but that doesn't seem to help.
Does anyone have any suggestions on veggies I can try, or maybe things to add in?
Thanks!

I always found that I would have to put either pumpkin, sweet potato, or carrot in with what ever other veges that I gave my kids. Just something sweet to go with it, and I use a Mully as I think it makes a better job of mushing it up that new gadgets.

Have you ever made green smoothies? If you mix frozen bananas, strawberries, yougert, in the blender, then add green things like spinach, kale, swiss chard (maybe not all at once)just pick one of those. You really can't taste the green, just the fruit. We have a blendtec (similar to vitamix) which helps makes it smooth like a smoothie shop, and my daughter loves drinking from a straw, so that helps. You could try a normal blender though, let me know how it works.

Pumpkin? My kid LOVES it. He loves banana anything too I used to whiz the broccoli in with the sweet potatoes and pumpkin and other things all together and the pumpkin and sweet potato overpowered the boring taste of the good-for-you vegetables.
