Cook the green beans, asparagus and carrots in vegetable broth until just tender. Depending on how fresh they are the vegetables may need different cooking times, tougher one first (but remember they will cook more once with the rice so make sure not to overcook, very al dente). Add saffron and keep hot on stove.
In a metal paella pan with about a 15-inch base, heat the oil. Sauté the onion and pimiento until the onion is wilted. Add the tomato and cook 10 minutes, stirring frequently. Optional: In a processor or blender, mix the almonds, garlic, and 2 tablespoons of the parsley until they are finely chopped (if you like coarser texture chop by hand).
Add the rice to the tomato mixture and stir to coat. Stir in the garlic mixture (if used) or garlic (oil) and 2 tbls of parsley, then the beans (with juice if using TJ brand). Pour in most of the broth (boiling hot) until mixture is soupy, then add vegetables and stir. Add artichoke and olives to desired balance and stir.
Bring to a boil, then lower the heat to simmer, and cook 10-15 minutes, covered (with foil if necessary), until the rice is no longer soupy but some liquid remains. Stir in slivered almonds and cook 5 more minutes (add more broth if needed). Let sit 10 minutes before serving. Squeeze lemon on top, stir, and sprinkle with the remaining parsley.
Optional: After cooking uncovered on stove at medium heat for 7 minutes, transfer to a 325° F oven and bake, uncovered, 10 minutes, until the liquid is absorbed but the rice is not quite done. Decorate with the egg wedges and artichokes, then back to the oven another 5 minutes.
