Heat broth, salt and pepper in a saucepan over medium heat and bring to a low simmer. Reduce heat to low.
Heat butter or olive oil in a large skillet on medium heat. Add garlic and leek and cook until soft, about 4 minutes. Stir in rice and carrots, coating them with butter or oil. Turn heat to medium-low.
Stir in hot broth, 1 cup at a time, waiting for rice to absorb liquid before adding more - this will take 30-35 minutes. Add asparagus and peas when about 1 cup of broth is left. Stir in almonds just before serving, so they stay crunchy.
