  1. In a large saucepan over high heat, add the pistachios and cover with water by 2 inches. Bring to a simmer and allow to cook for 20 minutes or until they soften. Drain and reserve on the counter top. 
  2. In a food processor fitted with a metal blade, add the pistachios, tahini, lemon juice, cumin, espelette, and garlic. Process until smooth, about 4 minutes. Slowly incorporate 2 tablespoons of the olive oil. 
  3. When ready to serve sprinkle the top of the hummus with the paprika, the remaining olive oil, and the parsley.
