You don't know jack about wild rice. Us native Minnesotans know all
about it - and, as Oregonian Haruspex mentioned, the black paddy-grown
cultivated 'wild' rice is garbage. The genuine hand-harvested wild
rice is far superior and not that much more expensive.

Wild rice soup is one of the classic uses of wild rice, along with its
use as a poultry stuffing, pilaf, and of course, the main component of
wild rice hotdish.

Also, that wild rice soup is Byerly's signature dish. They're famous
for it.
