Place a cooling rack over a baking sheet. Lay the eggplant slices on the rack, generously salting each slice (about 1/4 teaspoon per slice).
Place another baking sheet on top of the eggplant and weigh it down with a few cans. Let them sit 30 minutes.
Flip the eggplant slices, sprinkle with more salt, weigh down again and let them sit for another 30 minutes.
Rinse the eggplant slices well and pat them dry.
Warm a grill pan over moderately-high heat. Brush the eggplant slices with olive oil on one side; place the oiled-side down on the hot griddle and brush the other side.
Cook until browned, about 2 minutes, then flip and cook another 2 minutes.
In a nonstick pan or skillet, add the minced garlic over medium-high heat and sauté until browned and softened. Mix in a small bowl with the feta cheese crumbles.
Spoon some feta crumbles mixed with garlic at one of end of a slice of eggplant. Add a spoonful of diced tomatoes and a few sprigs of mint and parsley.
Sprinkle with salt and pepper to taste and roll and place on a plate seam-side down.
The eggplant slices need to sit, weighed down, for 60 minutes to draw out the bitter juices.
