Heavy Cream Substitute?

Recommended Posts

I'm interested in cooking this fennel leek potato soup recipe and am wondering if there's anything I can use for a heavy cream substitute. I know the heavy cream is optional, but I'm seeking that velvety texture. :) Sorry if this question has been asked a billion times. The search button for the forum is covered by the social media links/logos, and I can't seem to use it. Is there a search link a mod can send me to use?

Leek, Potato, and Fennel Soup with Bacon
2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil 
4 leeks, tender white parts with a little green only, thinly sliced

1 fennel bulb, cored and thinly sliced
2 cloves garlic, crushed
2 large potatoes, scrubbed, peeled, and chopped into small dice
3 cups chicken or vegetable stock
Salt to taste
1/2 cup heavy cream (optional) 
1/4 pound (4 strips) extra-thick bacon
Fresh chives, snipped, to garnish

It's so much easier to just use Google to search for your whole30 questions! 99.9% of the time the first result will be a forum post and then you can go from there :)
