What about using a food masher like this:
Amazon.com: OXO Tot Baby Food Masher, Green: Baby
I use that, and it makes food chunkier than purees, but there are no big chunks that they can choke on. We use it on things like sweet potatoes, zucchini, yellow squash, pumpkin, eqqplant, beans/chickpeas, etc. Or how about eggs or fish ( I can't remember if you eat fish and eggs or not)? Really flaky white fish like swai or tilapia doesn't have much texture at all.
And like Kristen said...if she's not enjoying the chunkier things, that's okay! It's all for fun at this age, and one of these days she'll decide she likes it.
I have also found that sometimes taking a break for a few days and then coming back to solids can really help.
You are doing a great job, Nina...try not to stress!
