Sauce or garnish for kale chips

Have made (plain roasted, s&p) kale chips before and liked them. But have so much kale on hand, I'm looking for another flavor to serve with them.
A dip? A sauce? Other?
Looking for mostly vegetarian this time around.
TIA

I think kale chips would be suited changing the seasoning rather than making a dip or sauce for them because they can be fragile in my experience. I've made sweet & spicy, buffalo flavored and parmesan off hand.

nutritional yeast is delicious for the vegetarian variation.

How a miso-based sauce or dip? Maybe a dip with sriracha? I agree with sexyLAMBCHOPx that the kale chips are fragile and maybe changing the seasoning might be better. Some seasoning ideas:
-smoked paprika
-miso
-tamari
-wasabi
-ranch (made with a ranch mix which you can diy)
- Penzey's Northwoods seasoning, etc.

Thanks both for cautions about fragility and seasoning ideas...going ahead with (for now) parmesan, ranch, wasabi...maybe order or make other seasonings with more time for another batch. :)
