sunshine

Here is my best explanation:

'light' is the definition.
(sunshine is a kind of light)

'oriental dish around noon one without starter' is the wordplay.
'oriental dish' becomes 'sushi' (I've seen this before).
'around' indicates putting letters inside.
'noon' becomes 'n'.
'without starter' means to remove the first letter.
'sushi' enclosing 'n' is 'sunshi'.
'one' with its initial letter removed is 'ne'.
'sunshi'+'ne'='SUNSHINE'
