Preheat oven to 500°. Pierce each eggplant in one place with a knife. Set in a rimmed pan and bake until very soft when pressed, 20 to 25 minutes. Slit eggplants open and let cool.
Scoop out flesh, finely chop, and put in a bowl; discard peels. Stir mint, green onion, lemon juice, olive oil, chile, and garlic into eggplant. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Spread mixture on a platter.
Scatter tomatoes and parsley over eggplant. Serve with pita bread.
Thank you Zee! This was a simple, yummy dish that was consummed by all in about 1 hour. The mint was refreshing, the jalapeño gave a subtle kick, and lemon rounded out the flavor. We made it with Heritage Tomatoes and scooped it onto toasted Pitas. like i said it did not last long :-)
