Stir-Fried Beet Greens with Baby Beets & Potatoes

It was a pleasure to find a bundle of baby beets with the greens attached among the groceries my husband brought home the other day. The greens were very fresh, so I used all of it from the baby beets, attached stems and the greens. Knowing how the greens reduce when cooked, I added a russet potato to add bulk. This is a very simple preparation that can be used with any spinach or greens. Bengalis refer to any and all greens as shaak (spinach), including squash greens, beet greens and all other edible greens.
