Broccoli is great, so is cauliflower.
Also battons of carrot, butternut squash, sweet potato, courgette, parsnip, normal potato wedges. I tend to roast most of Erin's veggies as she much prefers the flavour. 15 mins in some olive oil for little finger size battons is about right - soft without being mushy!
Green beans are actually chewy for babies, you have to cook them for a long time until they are soft enough to eat, and then they may not taste of much!
Have you read the blw book by Gill Rapley? It's very good and suggests lots of ideas for first foods.
