I found this great recipe that I know I would enjoy. Can anyone tell me what I can use in place of the heavy cream? I'm sure there is a way to make something suitable with silken tofu in place of dairy cream.

Grilled Eggplant and Tomato Gratin


2 large ripe tomatoes, thinly sliced
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 medium-size eggplants (2-1/2 pounds total), sliced 1/2 inch thick
3/4 teaspoon dried oregano
3/4 teaspoon dried basil
2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
1/2 cup heavy cream
1-1/2 cups shredded Fontina cheese (use a soy cheese)
Fresh basil, for garnish (optional)

1. Place sliced tomatoes on paper toweling; sprinkle with salt. Place paper toweling on top. Let stand 30 minutes. Pat top of tomatoes to remove as much liquid as possible.

2. Prepare outdoor grill with medium-hot coals, or heat gas grill to medium-hot, or heat oven broiler.

3. Coat eggplant on both sides with nonstick cooking spray.

4. Grill eggplant slices 6 inches from coals, or broil on baking sheet coated with cooking spray, 6 inches from heat, 5 minutes on each side or until tender.

5. Heat oven to 350F.

6. Coat large, shallow oval baking dish (about 15 x 10 inches) with nonstick cooking spray. Arrange eggplant and tomato slices, alternating, around and slightly up sides of baking dish. Avoid overlapping too much; try to keep in single layer. Place a few down center of dish. Sprinkle with oregano, basil and garlic. Pour heavy cream* over top; sprinkle with cheese. Cover with foil.

7. Bake in 350F oven 45 minutes, until bubbly. Remove foil. Bake 10 minutes, until cheese is golden. Cool 10 minutes. Serve warm or at room temperature.
