Dill and shelled fresh fava beans will give rice a fresh and appealing green color. When they are out of season, use frozen fava beans or lima/butter beans. The dish is usually cooked with meat to make a hearty main meal. Lamb, veal shanks or chicken are all delicious with this kind of rice. An option is to leave out the meat and serve it with yogurt sauce.
