Beetroot stew

I had made this stew/soup last month to chase the sniffles away. It was very comforting and nourishing.
(All the vegetables finely chopped)
1 turnip
1 parsnip
1 beetroot
1 onion
4 cloves of garlic
2 medium carrots
1 green stem of leek
1 small celery stick
dill, parsley, cilantro
1 stick of cinnamon and 1 bay leaf
half cup cubed tofu
salt and white pepper to taste
1 tbsp sugar 
Mixed italian herbs (optional)
Juice of 1 lemon
4- cups of water (or as needed)
olive oil

Heat some oil in a pressure cooker and add onion. Cook for a few minutes then add the garlic, cinnamon and bay leaf. Cook for a little while and then add the rest of the vegetables, salt, sugar and herbs. Cover the lid of the pressure cooker and let it cook for a while ( I cooked it for 2 whistles).  When it is done add the tofu and juice of lemon.
