Baked cauliflower with rye bread crumbs

I had a big cauliflower head waiting to be cooked and I wanted the dish to be really simple but tasty. In Estonia, where I live, the rye bread for us is like rice for Asia. I cannot imagine a life without a tasty and dark rye bread. The white breads just won't do. The sage, bread and oil together make the perfect companions for the cauliflower. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did!

You can eat it as a main course or serve it with buckwheat or whole-wheat pasta like we did.
