I just made this soup and it's really wonderful. I added 1/2 serrano pepper when I added the liquid and I added vegetable broth instead of water since I had a bunch I needed to use. This is a great soup!! Using the water instead probably would be even better for giving it such a strong broccoli flavor. Great recipe.

Will it work with frozen broccoli?

sure, don't see why not. I used broccoli that came from a local farm and i convince myself it has more taste, but I am not sure I really can tell the difference when it's cooked :). Let me know if it worked for you.
