Add these pieces of cauliflower into a medium size pot and pour enough water that these pieces submerge completely. Then boil cauliflower and let it simmer. While it simmers you can set an aluminum foil on a baking dish. Then put your bacon strip on the baking dish with the sheet. Then bake bacon strips in air fryer until they become crispy. It should not take more than 8 minutes if not cut into thick strips. Once the bacon is done, cut them into small pieces.
