It should be mía. Possesive pronouns must agree in gender with the subject they modify. Since la cebolla is feminine, the correct sentence is la cebolla es mía.

Just an addendum. Possessives must agree in both gender and number with the subject.

The adjective (mia) needs to match the subject (cebolla), and they are both femenine so they match. Did that answer your question?

mio/a depends upon the gender and the number of the subject
