Cook quinoa according to package instructions.
Meanwhile, heat a non-stick frying pan over medium-high heat. Cook sliced halloumi in the dry pan for 2-3 minutes on each side until it turns golden-brown and slightly crispy on the outside. Remove from the pan and cover with foil to keep warm.
Add the olive oil to the same pan, then cook the onion, bell pepper and thyme on medium heat for 4-5 mins, stirring occasionally, until softened. Season with salt and black pepper to taste.
Mix the spinach, quinoa, and cooked veggies together in a large bowl. In a small bowl, whisk together olive oil, fig jam, and Dijon mustard. Pour over the salad mix and toss until well coated. Season with salt and black pepper, if needed.
In a bowl, mash the avocados and lemon juice with a fork until smooth. Season with salt and pepper.
To assemble: Place tortillas on a work surface and spread each with avocado mixture. Top with the quinoa salad and halloumi. Wrap and serve.
