Place a rack in upper third of oven; preheat to 400°. Score cut sides of eggplants with a sharp knife. Rub with 2 Tbsp. oil and season with Sel Magique. Roast, skin side down, on a large rimmed baking sheet until tender but not browned, 22–28 minutes.
Meanwhile, whisk ginger, miso, tamari, vinegar, sugar, and remaining 4 Tbsp. oil in a medium bowl until smooth. Set 3 Tbsp. glaze aside in another medium bowl.
Increase oven temperature to 450°. Spoon remaining glaze over cut sides of eggplants. Roast until glaze is browned and bubbling, 12–15 minutes. Let cool slightly.
While the eggplants are cooling, whisk lime juice into reserved glaze. Add cucumbers, scallions, grains, and basil and toss to coat.
Divide eggplants among plates; spoon grain salad over. Add a pinch of your favorite Sel Magique salt blend.
