Food options for 6 month old DD

I am looking for suggestions about other foods to give dd that are not pureed baby food. Does anyone give their DC food that they eat? DD is only 6 months and no teeth yet but very interested in eating with husband and I eat. I do let her suck on some of the foods we eat but haven't given her pieces to actually swallow because I am worried about choking. Should I be? 

What do you all do? Reccomendations?

We started DD with banana and avacado but did baby led weaning and she didn't show real interest (other than playing in it) till closer to 9 months

Banana, avocado, soft cooked apple, soft cooked anything really. If you can squish it between your fingers without putting too much pressure on it baby can eat it.
No nuts, peanut butter, honey or Karo syrup. Anything else is ok.

When my kids were starting on solids, I used to take what dh and I were having for dinner and puree it.  My kids loved mashed potatos, mashed sweet potatos, butternut squash, applesauce, bananas, peaches, and pears. When my kids got a little older, I gradually added combinations like chicken, with rice and peas, or turkey with mashed potatos, and green beans.  I waited until my kids were about 9monthes before I started giving them soft foods without blending it in the blender, and both of my kids were around 12 monthes before I introduced them to cheerios, or anything with nuts in it.

I tried that stuff with my dd, but she gagged and threw up. Just the smell of that stuff makes me gag too! We got it through WIC, so it wasn't too much of a loss to throw that one jar away. Never got anymore for her though.

Thanks all ! I will try some of these suggestions. I boiled carrot sticks last night and let her have a soft carrot stick. DD seemed to like this. :)

Cooked carrots & peas are great options! Even small, peeled pieces of diced potatoes! MASHED potatoes are great too!
