Many years ago when Phil Donohue was still on tv, he had Susan St. James on his show. She made some recipes that I used to make and my family loved, but I cannot for the life of me remember all the ingredients or how to put them all together.
The first one was a recipe for a barley casserole that had barley, fresh veggies, some kind of cheese (I think Swiss or Mozzarella) and liquid of some sort, and it was baked.
I would suggest the following link:

Cheesy Baked Barley
2 cups water
1/2 cup medium pearled barley
1/2 teaspoon salt, divided
Nonstick cooking spray
1/2 cup diced onion
1/2 cup diced zucchini
1/2 cup diced red bell pepper
1-1/2 teaspoons all-purpose flour
3/4 cup milk
1 cup (4 ounces) shredded Italian blend cheese, divided
1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
Bring water to a boil in 1-quart saucepan. Add barley and 1/4 teaspoon salt. Cover; reduce heat and simmer 45 minutes or until barley is tender and most of the water has evaporated. Let stand covered, 5 minutes.
Preheat oven to 375°F. Spray medium skillet with cooking spray. Cook onion, zucchini and bell pepper over medium-low heat about 10 minutes or until soft. Stir in flour, remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt and seasoned pepper to taste; cook 1 to 2 minutes. Add milk, stirring constantly; cook and stir until slightly thickened. Remove from heat and add barley, 3/4 cup cheese and mustard; stir until cheese is melted.
Spread in even layer in casserole. Sprinkle with remaining 1/4 cup cheese. Bake 20 minutes or until hot. Preheat broiler. Broil casserole 1 to 2 minutes or until cheese is lightly browned.
