Using a fork, poke the eggplant at least a dozen times. Place on a bking sheet and broil on all sides about 4 to 5 inches from the source of heat.

Cut the eggplant in half lengthwise, and scoop out the soft insides, discarding the browned peel. In a bowl mash the eggplant and the remaining ingredients, except the garnishes, with a fork.
