Give your baby a wide variety of veggies simply cooked. Cooked veggies are better because they are easier to digest but you don't want them cooked to death. You want to stay away from corn and veggies that are hard to digest. Babies never need baby food and can start solids on things like fork mashed sweet potato and avacado that they feed themselves. Feeding themselves (with their hands) is an important skill and they can eat the amount they want.
Don't limit veggies to just what you like. You can quickly steam or microwave. If you make too much of something you can freeze it or store in fridge. You could make an acorn squash and if you don't like it you could freeze in serving size portions. You don't have to "make baby food."
