Here's a dish I made the other night that I'll be making again.  It's from
"Vegetariana" by Neva Atlas.

Barley and Mushroom Pilaf

1 Cup raw barley
2 tablespoons water
1 medium onion, chopped
2 medium celery stalks, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 cups coarsely chopped mushrooms
2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
2 tablespoons chopped fresh dill
1 1/4 cups cooked or canned navy or great northern beans (about 1/2 cup
2 to 3 tablespoons soy sauce, to taste
1 tablespoon honey
Freshly ground pepper to taste

Cook the barley.  Heat the water in a large skillet.  Add the onion,
celery, and garlic.  Saute over moderate heat until the onion is
transluscent.  Add the mushrooms and continue to saute until the
ionion is golden.  Add the cooked barley and all the remaining
ingredients and cook over low heat, stirring frequently, for 10
minutes.  Serve at once.
