Preheat oven to 450°F. Bring a medium pot of water to a boil over high heat. Rinse all produce. Roughly chop broccoli into ¼-inch pieces. Halve radishes and thinly slice into half-moons. Thinly slice chives. Halve lemon. Peel shallot and mince. Thinly slice garlic. Drain and rinse white beans and pat very dry with paper towel (so they crisp in the oven). Line a baking sheet with foil.
Cook rice and eggs
Season boiling water generously with salt. Stir in rice and cook until almost tender, 22-25 minutes. Reduce heat to medium-high. Using a slotted spoon, carefully add 2 eggs to pot with rice and cook until rice is tender, 6 minutes more. Then, transfer soft-boiled eggs to a medium bowl and cover with cold water to stop cooking. Set aside. Drain rice; return to pot, off heat, and cover to keep warm.
Roast broccoli and beans
While rice and eggs cook, on 1 half of prepared sheet, toss white beans and half of garlic with 2 teaspoons olive oil, ¼ teaspoon salt, and black pepper as desired. On other half of sheet, toss broccoli with remaining garlic, 2 teaspoons olive oil, ¼ teaspoon salt, and black pepper as desired. Arrange in a single layer and roast until broccoli is tender and white beans are slightly browned and crispy, 14-16 minutes.
Make shallot dressing
While broccoli and beans roast, heat 1 teaspoon olive oil in a medium nonstick pan over medium heat. When oil is shimmering, add shallot and sauté, stirring, until softened, about 5 minutes. Transfer to a large bowl (big enough for the salad), along with whole-grain mustard, juice of ½ lemon, 3 tablespoons olive oil, ¼ teaspoon salt, and black pepper as desired. Whisk to fully combine. Use remaining lemon to brighten a glass of water.
Finish salad and peel eggs
To bowl with dressing, add Parmesan and whisk to combine (the sautéed shallot will have had some time to cool, so the cheese won't melt). Add wild rice, radishes, and roasted broccoli, and toss to coat. Season with ¼ teaspoon salt and black pepper as desired. Drain and carefully peel soft-boiled eggs.
Plate wild rice salad
Divide broccoli and wild rice salad between serving plates and top with roasted white beans. Halve soft-boiled eggs and add to plates. Garnish with chives and crushed red pepper (skip or use half for less heat), and dig in!
