Explanation:
'soup beans' could be 'haricot beans' 扁豆 or some other type of dried beans used in soups.

'twisted in a square of paper' is a way to wrap them (put them in a square of paper and twist the top). You might get them like this from an old-fashioned shop, store them like this, or wrap them like this to give to someone.
