Wonderful combination of fresh mushrooms and quick cooking barley
Saute mushrooms in butter for about 5 minutes until soft, over med-high heat.
Add barley and stir around until coated and mixed with mushrooms. Add 1/4 cup wine, continue stirring over med-high heat, about 2 minutes.
Add water, bring to boil, reduce heat, cover and cook for 10 minutes. Check the pan periodically to make sure there is enough liquid, pans and cooking times can vary.
Mix well and season with salt and pepper.

This dish tastes yummy served warm, at room temperature or cold. If you're not thrilled about cilantro, you can omit and still enjoy simple lime barley ;-)
Rinse and drain barley. Place the 6 cups of water or broth in a saucepan, add the barley and bring to a boil.
Reduce heat to low, cover and cook until barley is tender and water is almost absorbed, about 45 minutes.
Meanwhile, whisk together olive oil, lime juice, cilantro, and salt to taste, cover and set aside for flavors to blend.
Fluff the barley, drizzle with the dressing, stir and serve.

My family always throws away the boiled barley seeds after making barley drinks and I think it's just a waste. So are there any recipes that will make use of boiled barley seeds?

Use as a substitute for cooked rice in pilaus and risottos or use to make stuffings. I use barley instead of rice in my low GL diet.
Since they no longer will really have any nutritional value and since they probably would add a strange flavor to most recipes perhaps after being cooked as you mention you could dry them and use for crafting or simply place in the garden as a natural mulch.
