Here are the recipes from Friday's show:

Directions:
Toss well and serve immediately. Top with fresh basil

Chilled Cucumber Soup
2 medium cucumbers (about a pound)
3 spring onions
1 clove garlic
2 cups 0% fat Greek yogurt
1/4 cup mint
1/4 cup fresh parsley
Chill for 1 hour
Preparations:
Peel, deseed and chop cucumbers and place in blender. Chop onions and add to blender.

then serve in small bowls, and garnish with thinly sliced cucumber and sprig of mint.

No Bake Blueberry Pie

5 cups fresh or frozen blueberries, divided (preferably organic)
1/4 cup sugar or other alternative sweetener
1 1/2 cups water
2 tablespoons cornstarch

Dissolve sugar and cornstarch in 1 1/2 cups of water on low heat. Once sugar mixture is dissolved add 3 cups of blueberries; bring to a full boil stirring constantly. Reduce heat to low and cook, stirring for 2 minutes. Remove from heat. Stir in butter, lemon juice. Let blueberry mixture cool for 10-15 minutes. Put remaining fresh blueberries into the crumb crust then spoon cooled blueberry mixture on top. Refrigerate for 2 hours or until set.
