what kind of veggies do bettas like?

While I was reading up on ways to get rid of the fungus that was growing in my tank (it's gone now by the way) I came upon an article that said it was good to vary a betta's diet with pellets, bloodworms, and veggies.

I already have the pellets and bloodworms, what are some good veggies to feed Marley?

I have found that mine are particularly fond of Peas,Carrot and Broccli , these veggies are cooked, Cooled (of course) and cut into tiny little Betta bite size pieces fed to by hand or on the end of a flat toothpick

Peas are the easiest to feed- just thaw a frozen pea in some tank water. Squish the inside out of the skin and spear a little bit of the squishy part with a not-too-sharp toothpick. Then you can feed it to him right off of the end of the toothpick.
