What to do with Barley

I've been making a serious effort to branch out and try healthier foods that I've never made before. On my to-do list: Barley.

I'm trying not to judge a book by its cover, but these hard, tan little things peeking out from a cellophane bag look like they're going to be all kinds of bland. I could easily Google some recipes, but I trust Serious Eaters more.

Do any of you have barley recipes that are yummy and not so labor-intensive? What's the best cooking method for barley? I don't know a thing about it.
