  1. In a large pot or Dutch oven, heat the olive oil over medium heat. Add the onion and garlic, and sauté for 5 minutes or until the onions become soft and translucent.

  2. Add the bell pepper, carrots, and zucchini to the pot, and continue to cook for another 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.

  3. Stir in the black beans, kidney beans, pinto beans, crushed tomatoes, and vegetable broth.

  4. Add the chili powder, cumin, smoked paprika, oregano, salt, black pepper, and cayenne pepper (if using). Mix well to combine all the ingredients.

  5. Bring the chili to a boil, then reduce the heat to low, cover the pot, and let it simmer for at least 30 minutes, stirring occasionally. For deeper flavor, let the chili cook for up to an hour.

  6. Taste the chili and adjust the seasoning if necessary. If the chili is too thick, you can add more vegetable broth to achieve the desired consistency.

  7. Serve the vegan chili hot, topped with your choice of avocado, chopped cilantro, vegan cheese, and vegan sour cream.
