scapes--but not garlic!

so i've got a bunch of leeks and onions growing in my garden patch, and they've been sending forth little flowerheads. i trimmed them all off (b/f they bloomed) on the theory that (a) that would promote growth of the stalk and/or bulb; and (b) if you can eat garlic scapes, why not leek and onion scapes? however, i haven't had any luck finding any info--recipes, whether they will kill you, etc.--on non-garlic scapes. any ideas / experiences / recommendations?
