2 head Garlic
2 Tbsp Extra virgin olive oil
1/2 Tsp Sea salt
1/2 Freshly-ground black pepper
4 Tbsp minced garlic
2 Bunch Asparagus, trimmed
2 Tsp Lemon zest, grated
1/4 Cup Chives
Preheat oven to 400°F. Break the garlic heads into cloves and place in a small baking dish. Pour 2 tbsp of oil on the cloves and sprinkle with 1/4 tsp of salt and another 1/4 tsp of pepper. Let the garlic roast until soft and golden (20-40 min).
Remove the bottom half outer layer of each asparagus stalk, and place the asparagus on a baking sheet. Add 1 tbsp of oil, 1/4 tsp each of salt and pepper, and sprinkle with lemon zest. Roast until asparagus is tender (10-20 min) and let cool for 5 min.
After letting the garlic cool down, remove the garlic clove skins, and combine the skinless cloves with chives, garlic and lemon juice.
Portion the asparagus among 6 separate plates, and top each with 2 tbsp of roasted garlic vinaigrette and 1 tbsp of walnuts.

It is said that roasting nuts improves their digestability, and roasting on your own helps ensure that the nuts are fresher and tastier.
If you do buy roasted walnuts from a grocery store, make sure that you also check the nutritional label and the ingredients list to avoid deep fried nuts, which are sometimes used in roasted nut packages.
