  2. Add broth, barley, and 1 1/2 cups water. Cover, and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer, covered, 45 minutes, stirring halfway through. Add lima beans and chard leaves. Simmer 10 minutes more, or until lima beans are tender.

This is a very wholesome soup and was easy to make. We thought it was a bit bland, however, so we added salt, pepper and other spices and still felt it was missing something. The directions were right on though. Thanks for posting!
