  1. Heat the oil in a deep frying pan. Add the onion and garlic and cook gently for 5 minutes, or until softened.
  2. Stir in the rice and spices, then add the vegetable stock. Simmer for 10 minutes over a medium-high heat, stirring occasionally.
  3. Add the asparagus and courgette and continue cooking for a further 10 minutes, or until the liquid has almost disappeared and the rice is tender.
  4. Add the peas, broad beans and lemon juice, until heated through. Stir in the dill and season to taste. Divide between bowls and serve with a wedge of lemon for squeezing over.
