My standard stir fry: some sort of high-heat oil, a dash of sesame oil, soy or teriyaki sauce, crushed ginger and garlic, veggies. If you want a little heat, add crushed red pepper.
You could also another route and use black bean paste, mirin, ginger, and garlic. If you don't have black bean paste, you could use concentrated mushroom stock to get your dose of umami.
Oh, and baptismal rice is pretty rare these days. When people used to throw rice at weddings, some of it inevitably ended up in the baptismal font of churches. Church weddings are usually on a Saturday, and baptisms are usually on Sundays so there's not much time between one event and the other to find all the stray rice grains.
Anyhow, many parents would freak out when they found what they thought was lice in the hair of their newly baptized children. Naturally, they blamed the churches for this.
And that's the real reason why throwing rice at weddings has fallen out of fashion.
