This light, bright stir-fry features some of summer’s best: zucchini, sweet peppers (which can come in an array of colors like green, yellow, orange and red) and corn straight off the cob. We’re adding hearty soba noodles—a Japanese go-to made from buckwheat—then wrapping it all up in the refreshing flavors of a sweet chili-ponzu sauce. For a zesty garnish with pleasing crunch, we’re pan-toasting cashews with fresh, citrusy ginger and sprinkling them on top.
