You should eat this vegetable with beans sauce.
Do you mean a sauce called "vegetable with beans", or a particular vegetable with "beans sauce"?

If the former, I would prefer "use" over "eat" unless you're just eating the sauce by itself (which sounds really odd because usually a sauce is meant to be used with something else), and my dialectal preference would be for "and" over "with".

If the latter, I would strongly prefer "bean sauce". Illogical, I know, but much easier to say and it's what's usually done (as in "chicken noodle soup").

Everything else is perfect as far as I can tell.
