Baby food ideas

I've been feeding my 8 month old twins home made babyfood since they were about 6 months old, and I want to start giving them foods with more flavors. So far, I've been sticking to really basic things like peas, carrots butternut squash or sweet potatos, cereals mixed with bananas or applesauce. We just started on whole milk yogurt this week...and even added some tahini and flax seed to soft tofu. (Really healthy....) All of this stuff is really bland, and I want to start giving them stronger flavors

What other kinds of foods can i give them? I'm not interested in starting them on meats yet... eventually we'll do that, but as a vegetarian, I'm not ready to start down that road just yet!

I also work full time, so it needs to be easy to find, easy to steam,or bake and mush up with a stick mixer! Fresh or frozen veggies or things easily found at a good grocery store....

I've found that making my own baby food is SO much cheaper than buying the stuff in the jars, and I can control what i feed long as I have the food in my house!
