    Preheat the oven to 180C. Bring a pan of water to the boil, add the bay and barley; cook for 20 minutes, or until soft but chewy. Drain then toss with plenty of olive oil and salt. Discard the bay.

    Spread the vegetables across 2 large roasting trays, coat in oil, a good pinch of salt, then add the lemon and garlic. Roast for 15 minutes then remove the asparagus and radishes. Roast the carrots and squash for a further 20 minutes then allow to cook slightly. Squeeze the roasted lemon juice over the veg. Using a fork, mash the garlic into a pulp then stir through the yoghurt and dill; season to taste.
