I LOVE to roast them, most any veggie, one of my favorite broccoli recipes is http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/good-eats/oven-roasted-broccoli-recipe/index.html.
Green beans too, my husband hated them until we did them roasted. http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/emeril-lagasse/oven-roasted-green-beans-recipe/index.html.
I cut back on the olive oil about half because I'm watching the calories. Asparagus on the grill, and leave until they get a little char, they taste a little like corn on the cob. Brush them lightly with garlic butter, when they are done.
I'm astonished, and kind of gratified, that your DOCTOR took you off fructose. I stopped eating it a year ago, kind of skeptically, because of the YouTube video "Sugar the bitter truth". The thing is kind of controversial, but I figured it wouldn't do me any harm to stop eating it and if helped, well so much the better. I do know I get full now, I don't feel hungry still after a reasonable amount of food. Good luck and I hope you get better.
