I friend of mine got this plant. First I thought it was chives but didn't smell like it. I looked closer and there are beans? at the base.
Does anyone recognize?

Looks like wheat grass and those are the wheat seeds that were sown in the pot. Often sold at pet stores for cats/dogs and also at health food stores for people that juice it.

RE: grass with seed at base?

It looks like it could be wheatgrass, which is sprouted wheat seeds. Sometimes it's sold as 'cat grass', because cats like to nibble on it and it might keep them away from other houseplants.
