THE BEST vegan chili recipe you're ever going to find!

I originally found this recipe typed out on a random Facebook post when I was trying to find a copy cat recipe for chili I had at a tiny diner in Vermont. The recipe was not a copy cat but it seamed to be on the right track so I went for it. The recipe wasn't vegan but it was easy enough to make it so and then I modified the hell out of it so I'm calling this version of it mine! Hope you like it.
